Just wanted to show you some of the few apples that have grown on our favorite fruit tree. It is placed between our house and the neighbors home in a spot that receives the brunt of the winds that frequent our area. Living at the base of the mountain has offered us many days of heavy winds, that just whip down between our houses. So, this tree bends its branches to the West. Making for an unusual looking tree. But the apples it produces are wonderful. For the past several years, we have had a grandson help us in the harvesting of the fruit. This year, the apples are low and few, so probably I'll be able to do it my self. Looking forward to a couple of apple pies and apple crisps and some for just plain eating.
