With our short growing season, we have trouble getting the apples on our fruit trees to ripen. But this year with the hot summer we've had, we have had renewed hopes of getting a decent harvest.
The apples have been sizing up nicely and turning a rosy, red color.
Hubby walked among the trees this morning to check out the apples' progress.
This is what he brought in for me to see. About one-quarter of the apples look like the two above. I kind of felt like crying. Instead I've declared death and destruction to be visited upon any apple-eating birds I see in the orchard. Either that or we're gonna have to put up a whole heckuva lot of netting.
