Apple harvest

After a few days of horrible rain and wind, yesterday brought a beautiful autumn afternoon, sunny and crisp; perfect for finally picking the abundant crop of this year’s apples. 3 small trees yielded all these apples!

The apples in the above photo are Golden Delicious, a bit marked on the skin but they taste fine when peeled so I will give some away and eat the rest. The other two bucketfuls I’ll wrap and store; lots of fruit to last through the winter months.

Just letting them dry out a little before they get a newspaper duvet

And a cardboard box bed to hide in till they are needed for pie/crumble duty!
