Apple Picking Time

My elderly neighbor has a lone apple tree that has been neglected except by the deer....
yet it still produces delicious apples.
Today the sun was shining and it was a warm 60 degrees and a perfect day for apple picking.
So I picked enough apples for my neighbor to bake a couple pies and for myself to make applesauce.
It was tricky getting to the good ripe ones, especially since I had lent my fruit picker and so I had to do a lot of reaching & a little climbing....and thankfully I managed to not fall out of the tree.
Don't laugh, I wore my bright poncho,,,after all it's deer hunting season up here and I did not want to be mistaken for a deer snacking on the apples.
I don't know about you, but I love harvesting,,,and the best reward for harvesting is the yummy edibles like pies....


  1. Oh My Goodness, that was the best applesauce I have ever eaten! And oh by the way, I did trim that tree for them. LOL. Now if the neighbor will share some of that apple pie hmmmmm.

  2. I definitely am living vicariously through do exactly the things that I would love to do....I couldn't even tell you where the nearest apple tree is and farmer's market...few and far between! That is what Fall is all about and how sweet of you to do that for your neighbor...a "win win" for all! I can smell it from here....YUMMO!


I love hearing from you....
