Climbing the apple tree to pick the bramleys reminds me of my childhood, it was so much fun, I can only recommend it.
The only down side to it is that now I’m older it felt very unsafe and stupid and not nearly as naughty because this time it is my tree in my back garden rather than someone else’s.
I also haven’t had cooked apple in a long while and I really enjoyed it… but there is a big box of apples so I’m sure by the end of the box I’ll be sick of it until next year. We’ve even off-loaded some on the neighbours as we’ll never get through them all. Does anyone know how to make apple crumble? Please help!
What’s odd though is the strawberry plants have grown three strawberries this late in the season, probably more than they did in the whole of the summer! This year the weather is messed up.
edit: 02/10/2011 – today I also relieved next doors’s tree of some eating apples, they weren’t as bad as my neighbour had led me to believe, so I’m glad he’s got plenty to share 🙂
