Fall Update

Well, fall is here!  The trees did pretty well this year.  The Cox’s Orange Pippin had a bunch of apples on it.  Actually, four of my seven trees had at least one apple.  I waited a bit too long to harvest my Cox’s Orange Pippin apples and they were starting to get mealy.  Another round of deer nibbled on my trees, but left the apples alone.  I thought that was kind of weird.

I’ve spent some time at Moore Orchards this fall.  Was able to pick some Yellow Transparent apples for my grandma late in the summer.  Been hitting up the orchard every Saturday for the past few weeks to get more apples.  My wife has also been eating a lot of apples and together, we have eaten over a bushel in less than a month.  Her favorites are 20oz and Jonathon.
