Every day we pick up droppings from a tree that is a bit early. We make just enough applesauce for a day, just enough for the house to smell incredible.
the nice ones are saved as they keep really well
the ugly ones are cooked immediately
We thought we were going to have to wait 10 years before we could produce apples but it turns out that our land came with quite a few apple trees. We took a good hike and sampled every tree we found. A good few were tart, some just not usable and a couple yielded good surprises. It also seems to be an excellent year for apples and so we find ourselves with more apple than we’ll know what to do with before we even planted a tree. They need a few more weeks to yield their exact flavor but it was a nice appetizer 🙂 It’s cool that these trees make apples that are unique to the place. We will graft the couple of good surprises in due time.
Some of them will definitely need more breathing room
