Garden: Apples

Category Garden

Here is a picture of my apple tree this year. I have a tree with several varieties all grafted together, so it can self pollinate. We always call it our "Frankenapple". It was pretty loaded with apples but we should have thinned them at some point and probably need to do more research on getting rid of the pests.


I picked as many as I could reach last night and I got maybe two bushels of good apples with some spots. The worst ones went right back into the compost bin. We lost a lot on the ground too, and some had definitely been feeding some happy birds.

They aren't the most lovely apples, but they will make some wonderful applesauce, and maybe some apple butter if I feel ambitious. I'll try to get out and get the ones that are high up this weekend.

Looks like a good year for apples. I think they liked the rain.
