The Apple Tree

It is mid-August and apple harvest time has begun ~

at least for the Transparent Apple tree which is the first

to fruit here at Cove Cottage Farm.

Step under the canopy of the tree, peer up and behold

the multitude of golden globed apples!

This has been one of the better producing years

for this old tree. And I somehow have managed to

beat the deer to the majority of them!

These sunshiny orbed beauties are not only 'pleasant

to the eyes' they are 'good for food', applesauce

to be precise!

But before they can fulfill their destiny,

they must be picked!

And to see what they are to become...

please follow me to The Pantry!

Joining Tracie at Fishtail Cottage for

Cottage Flora Thursday!
