Wordless Wednesday: Apple Picking

We picked our first apple of the year. We planted the tree when we first moved into the house, so unlike our established citrus trees, this one is not what you would call abundant. Last year we got two apples, this year is looks to be about four. It has been a struggle keeping Spencer away from the fruit, but he loved finally being able to pick, and eat, it.


Do you have a wordless wednesday post? I’d love to see!

    What a great photo!

    My in-laws own several acres of land in Wisconsin and there are tentative/vague plans to plant out an orchard up there (especially a certain type of plum they use to make brandy with). I want to do apples, too. In my fantasy land, fruit trees don’t need much maintenance so we can just plant them and happily let nature take its course until we want to harvest the fruit, which will still be there and not eaten by various animals/insects.

    We bought a house with well established fruit trees and they don’t take a ton of work, but commercial orchards are pretty labor intensive I think. I’ve always wanted to go to Wisconsin and just never made it there, my dad was born there and lived for most of his childhood and family lore says I was conceived there. Maybe it is the call of my roots…
