Picking Apples!

Dear Readers,

I can hardly believe it’s October already!

The weather has been wonderful, though, and it’s a great time to enjoy the farm and pick apples!

I have many apple trees here - the large ones were on the property when I bought it, and are thought to be up to sixty years old!

I also have espaliered apple trees that I planted here.  An espalier is a fruit tree or ornamental shrub whose branches are trained to grow flat against a wall, lattice, or framework of stakes.  Mine are planted with stakes and are not far from my kitchen door!

Wherever the apples grow, they are always delicious and oh so healthy.
