It's that time of year when everything is ripening. My honey crisp tree has an insane number of apples on it. I've removed at least 50, no probably 60 and still there are so many! It is highly traumatic for me to twist off the little green orbs... they're so close to ripe, but the tree is literally tipping over and branches are breaking! :( bad gardener, bad!.... most of my labor is either sat upon by the dog or eaten by the deer, slugs, birds, bunnies etc. Ah, well, good thing I'm a painter.
