I hope we get as many tomatoes from our garden this year as we are going to get apples from the trees in our yard. The apple trees are sagging under the weight of them, and they appear to be ripening quickly.
I don't think this tree has ever had so many apples on it in the 12 years we've lived here.
There are three different kinds of apple trees between our house and the vegetable garden out in yard. The lopsided tree on the right is the one we think might not be long for this world. The other two are doing fine, and all three are proving to be very productive in 2015.
Besides the ones in our yard, there must be a dozen or more other apple trees around the hamlet (9 houses). I guess we all ought to keep donkeys or horses — they'd have plenty to eat. We are going to be buried in apples in a month or two.
