Apple Poem bas 2014INSPIRED BY NATURE… Nine years ago we planted five apple trees (Granny Smith, Greening, Red Rome, Cortland and Macoun) in crescent between the house and the barn here at The Farmstead. Today we harvested five bushels. No need to go to the orchard or to the market for apples this year. Wishing you a bountiful fall! ~ Bette A. Stevens

  1. Oooooh, I love apples! Enjoy! Hugs, N ❤

  2. How wonderful!

  3. You sure got a great return on that investment!

  4. Congratulations, Bette! isn’t it great to have your own apple trees?
    We have two huge old Wolf River apple trees and every other year, they bear thousands. Totally organic and one year some were kept in the fridge crisper till April. Do you have a cold room? Where do you store yours?

    • Hi, Cynthia. We do have a cold room (the addition between house and garage), but some of the beauties are already getting a bit punky… Baking up and freezing in batches so I can pull out a quart at a time. We don’t have Wolf River, but sounds like they really are ‘keepers’. This is the first year we’ve had our own apples by the bushels and it’s wonderful! Have a great day! 🙂
