This years apples !

Postby Russ Emmons » Sat Sep 27, 2014 1:29 am

First pic is sum of grand total of ALL apples from ALL our 4 trees this year :cry: Most other folks down this way have experienced about the same. I know apples & other fruits have off year cycles but I have to believe last winters extremes had something to do with it.

Most of the apples pictured here came from our huge tree out back that was so loaded last year it toppled over uprooted in a storm--(pictures in a previous post here) We left it and it grew this spring quite alive but on its side! We depend on our apples every year to can applesauce, chunky apples etc. Not this year but looks like enough here to make a pie or two. ;)

2nd pic is next day and nice pie made--yummy!--no GMOs in these apples! :W

We seemed to have done a little better here on the Great Huron Lake for apples but it was a down year. Transparents were abundant for the second year in a row and they usually alternate years. Winesaps did ok. Oddly heritage varietals are down. Honey crisp are average. Wolf Rivers were a nothing. Go figure?

I think we're doing pretty good up here on the NW side! All varieties are coming in like crazy!

According to the experts, this is going to be a near record setting year for apples, replacing New York as #2 apple producer in the country.

That is what I have read and heard.
