Eve Loves Apples

Every three years it seems we get a bumper crop of apples and this year all three of my varieties produced. Our early summer rains must have washed the coddling moths away because the fruit is well formed and the bees and asian beetles have not arrived to consume the fruit.  State Fair is right on schedule, followed by the Golden Crisp.  The Haralson need to add more weight and color and should keep well into October. 

The apple of my eye reaches for a beauty.

There's plenty for neighbors and for the deer.
