Small harvest of small apples

A few apple trees gave us delicious little apples this year.  The trees are only a few years old – and those years have been bad water years. So any apples are a stroke of luck right now. Someday we hope to have enough to try making home made cider.

We have nine different varieties of apples planted.  We had two colanders of a combo of Fuji and Granny Smith.  They were delicious to just pick and eat. In theory we should have a lengthy harvest period due to the varieties having different ripening times. Not this year. Maybe next year.
