Again the drought amazes us. We had a pretty record year with our apples, starting with Fuji’s in Spring and now we have these outrageous green apples.
It was hard to wait, wondering if the jays would find them before we did.
My husband bought a package of netting last year and we still had it. We took time to pull it over the trees early in Spring, at about the same time we put out our little soda bottle bug traps.
So now our cup runneth over.
I pick as many as I can handle in the kitchen. I like to leave them sitting for a couple of days and then run them through the juicer. They make great juice, a little tangy but mellow. The Fuji’s were like sugar water in comparison, I like both. The green juice makes the best hot cider.
Meanwhile we notice new loofahs and they keep getting bigger every day.
We’ve been thinking, how will we get them out of the trees? My son thinks we will be able to pull the vines down. I think we might have to get a ladder. We’ll see.
