All the sunshine has done the apples on my apple tree a lot of good.
If I were a better gardener, I would thin the apples out so that they grow far bigger. But I’m not really an avid fruit grower – when it works out well, I am pleased but some years the crop isn’t all that good. I think I just like the novelty of letting my children eat apples they’ve just picked from the tree.
A few have fallen to the ground – these I put in the compost bin. The compost bin has started to get a bit fly-ridden. Perhaps this is because of the hot weather. All the internet shopping I’ve done lately has meant a few more ripped up Amazon boxes in there. There is also a plant growing in there – I’m not sure what it is.
