A harvest

I have picked up the apples.
There is only a small tree, but it has tasty fruits.
They will not last long, because they are of a scab-infested disease this year. It is the first time.
I think it is not a good year, too much rain. The plums are moldy on the tree, long before they are ripe.
Also many raspberry rods I cut away, although they still had lots of green berries (they wear until the first frost). But all berries are moldy and unusable.
It is a crop failure this year. The apples still the best.
I am thankful that there are so many.


  1. I'm glad you got to have an apple harvest; sorry about your other crops. A friend of mine shared apples from her cousin's tree.

  2. It's a shame that so many fruit and berries will go to waste this year. But your baskets filled with apples look so delicious and so old-world! :)

  3. Beautiful apples! They look delicious. I'm sorry your other crops failed.

  5. Our tree is full of apples too. I guess I need to get out there before the bugs do.

  6. But despite nature's harsh treatment, you got a couple great bushels of fine looking apples.

  7. I'm glad you were able to salvage as many as you did! Hope these turn into many tasty treats!
