Fresh Picked Apples

15 Sep

Some of you may remember the apple tree on the abandoned homestead I pass by every week. Well, the tree is loaded down, the apples are ripe and ready for picking.

Or at least they are ready on the upper limbs. The lower limbs that you can reach without a ladder have been stripped clean, someone has been picking them. I found a long forked stick and reached up high and hooked a few to try.

They were delicious, fully ripe and warmed by the sun, the juice just ran down my chin as I ate this one. I am really looking forward to having our own trees on our homestead someday.
