Picked 1/2 the Fuji apples

mulberryknobAugust 6, 2012

this morning. Theya aren't quite ripe, but after the hoppers defoliated the tree, and the birds have strted in pecking the apples we decided to get started putting them up. I will peel, quarter, core and freeze this batch to make crisp with later. Glenn ran the hose on the tree for a half hour tonight to encourage it to put out more leaves and finish the apples. They're only about half the size they should be, but I don't think they will get any bigger. I left too many apples on the tree when I thinned them for a year as hot and dry as this.

It's so sad to hear they've stripped the tree.
