Over the weekend my in-laws came up for a get together to celebrate my daughters’ upcoming 9th birthday. They also had fun picking apples from our apple tree.
My mother-in-law took 2 five gallon buckets that were almost halfway full. My niece Sabrina got a nice amount in a box. After the festivities were over I wanted to go pick some, not for me but for my ROX family.
This is what I could reach. It may not look like much, but believe me it’s a grab. I do not fertilize or spray my tree, so these are completely natural treats the entire family can love. There is still this many or more near the top of the tree, but they are not ready for harvest yet. When they are I will be ready.
I couldn’t keep my mouth shut about what I was going to do, so I posted about this earlier. The only problem is that the apples weren’t ready yet. They are now.
This is what you will be receiving in the mail (in 2-4 days). A sheet with greetings and instructions on what we think would be a good use of the apples, a mason jar containing apple crisp mix, nutmeg and apples, there is also extra apples in each box.
We divided the apples in the big box pictured above into 4 equal parts.
B: If you want to find out what variety of apple these are, please do! I’d like to know for myself.
I don’t feel it’s appropriate to let this great natural resource of mine go to waste. You have all been like a family to me in one way or another. This is just one of many ways for me to say thanks.
