The red and golden delicious haven't ripened yet, which is typical, and the final tree, which normally ripens in November or even December has precious few apples of any size or color. So, it's looking like a disappointing apple year in our yard anyway. The transparents have provided us with apple pies and applesauce of fine quality, but the rest look like they may have a future mainly as apple juice. I put a 5-gallon barrel out near the trees so that all the windfalls (even though there is no wind, I guess that's what you call them) can be easily gathered up and delivered to the apple juice machine.
Hard to be a farmer, especially if you're a farmer who doesn't really know much about the crops you are growing and harvesting. I am, at best I fear, only an incidental farmer.
