when life gives you...
When life gives you a broken apple tree in August, you make a lot of apple sauce I guess. and you pout about losing a tree. Today, one of our two apple trees, just fell right over - it broke off a the trunk. We knew it was old, but I didn't think we'd lose it the first year! So I went out and picked a ton of apples - well, about a bushel and a half, i guess, and I'm going to be making apple sauce this weekend. I'll probably freeze some, but I feel like I should can some because I brought a bunch of canning jars when we moved. I should make sure all my carrying and hauling wasn't for naught!
These apples are a little bit gnarly - I didn't spray them because we were still dealing with the old house this past spring and there was just never time or money to do it. I'm pretty sure I can cut off any little spots and it'll be just fine!
