An Apple A Day…Angela | September 18, 2012
…off a tree in our backyard!
We have an fairly productive apple tree outside our bedroom window. While I had nothing to do with the success of this tree – it came with the house of course — I am seriously loving picking apples right now! They are crisp and sweet – perfection from a limb.
The tree is a mangy 50-year-old that is growing sideways, is covered with moss (what in the Northwest isn’t?), and is awfully close to the house. I pruned it back significantly when we moved it to provide some separation, and it obliged and produced fruit anyway, for which I am very appreciative. This is the first year I haven’t had a garden in many, so it is nice to have a little bit of home-grown goodness!
What are you growing right now?
