Oh, but I love my apple trees!
This year I actually got to see the blossoms for more than one day. The past 4-5 years we have had wacky weather Killer frosts which pretty much nip all the blossoms. Killer frost does that.
When that happens, there are no apples. So, it's been several years now we just haven't had one apple grown on our trees. On top of that, our trees have had a bit of trouble. We inherited them when we bought the property and built our home and they weren't in the best of shape then. Now, two of them have died. Was sad indeed! Oh, the apple sauce I made from those trees!
It's been quite a while since I have been able to make apple sauce from apples I've grown. Oh, I've made apple sauce with store bought apples, but gosh-darn-it! It's just not the same!
Yes, I am so hoping for a nice apple harvest this year and if I don't get one...well, I'll be crying a river!
