"Matt, if we don't do the fall things during the fall we will never do them!" 😜
Fortunately for us, we don't have to travel very far to enjoy one of my favorite activities - apple picking.
Our land has three mature apple trees and it is an absolutely beautiful day. Today we picked bushels and bushels of Granny Smiths - the ones with the spots will go to the deer, the rest are for us.
This year we are reaping the benefits of the previous owners' work on these trees. Over the winter we hope to pick my Uncle Frank's brain (and anyone else who may know about apple trees) to find out how we should be caring for them and ways to keep the brown spots/freckles from happening.
If any of you know, please share in the comments! We clearly are new to this 😃
When life gives you an apple tree, make apple crisp!
