An Apple a Day

The first ripe apple from the transparent tree today.  Must be August?  A month from now, we'll be awash in apples here on the Point.  Everybody has apple trees and the "old ones" planted lots of apple trees that now grow more or less wild in fields that somebody owns but sort of nominally.  And we will never have a way to use all those apples.

By contrast, the Italian plums look to be, for the first time in years, a very small crop (at least in my yard with 4 trees), whereas the one ancient pear tree seems to be trying to push up and out a dozen or so Bartlett pears.  Last year there were 2 or 3.  But that poor pear tree is so old that it has a hole that goes clear through its trunk at one point, so it's amazing it produces anything.

And that is the agriculture report for today!
