They tell you that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. If true, we won’t be seeing a doctor for many years. This year has brought a very pleasant apple surprise. In one of our grazing fields at the rear of the farm property, we recently discovered that we had a lot more apple trees than we believed. We estimate that a good fifty apple trees have grown at the edge of one of our grazing fields. The cows that traditionally graze here seem to have avoided this field this year more than before. As a result, the apple trees have had ample time to flourish and bear a bumper crop. There appears to be a rather diverse variety of apples as well, including crabapples, cider apples, both large and tiny apples, russet apples, sour and sweet apples, and other varieties that we have not been able to identify as of yet. We will be heading back to gather more apples but in the meantime, here are some images of our newfound apples.
