What do you do with the apples that fall from the tree?
Not yet ripe to make pie or crisp, they're great for driving
practice. Field Hockey starts in 3 weeks, and Liv needs
to live up to Big Sis's driving prowess. Some of them soar,
while others blow apart upon being struck by the stick.
All of them, whole or otherwise, are quickly eaten by our
local herd of deer who cruise through our back yard late
at night. I'm shocked that there are still figs on the tree!
By the way, this is the worst my back yard grass has ever
been. We haven't had rain since March, it seems, when
the basement flooded.
