It is that rather lovely time of year again when the limbs of our apple trees are bowed down with the weight of their bounty, and the hues of the various apple skins glint in the evening sun.
We have about nine apple trees in total, some cooking, some eating; the only one I’m certain of is the ever reliable Beauty of Bath which was the favourite of my great grandmother and does her proud every year.
Although the apples have not suffered any attacks from the crows they have come to the notice of the geese and the turkey. I don’t begrudge them the windfalls as I feel it will add even more flavour to them when they’re presented at the Christmas table. Ha, little do they suspect their fate!
