I was in a bit of a quandary about when to pick the apples from the tree in our garden this year. I was tempted to harvest them before we went away, as they looked ready and it would have meant that I could have scheduled this post to be posted on time last week. Then I thought that this was perhaps a silly idea, as they would just be sat in the fruit bowl ripening or possibly rotting if there were any blemishes on them. I decided to leave them where they were and wait until I got back, so I'm a little late with this last post in Mum's Alphabet blogging challenge. Sorry, Mum.
Once home, the apples were harvested. Partly because, until I did a shop, there was no fruit in the house, so it was quite timely. Unfortunately, many of them (there were only approximately 18 or so in total) had been infiltrated by a grub so these were cut up and unaffected parts made into tasty crumbles that were duly eaten with some stewed apple being put in the freezer for a second batch. The ones that were untouched, approximately 7, were put in the fruit bowl to be eaten at leisure.
As a consequence, I found myself almost wishing I had in fact harvested them before we went away, but the results may have still been the same, who knows. Regardless, it did give me a small sense of satisfaction that I had grown any edible ones at all.
