This is the 7th summer we've lived in this house. This is the 7th summer we've had apples growing on our own apple tree. This is the first summer I've utilized the apple tree! We've had friends and family pick apples from our tree before and they've made pies, jelly, apple butter, apple sauce ... but this is the first year I've had a desire to do anything with the apples.
They are huge and very tasty!
The girls and I made an apple pie today (my very first apple pie!) using apples from our tree.
I'm starting to feel like a regular ol' country girl growing my own pumpkins and baking pies with fruit produced in my own yard! The thought of planting more next year is really starting to grow on me!
