I have an amazing discovery right under my nose right here at my home that I must share. The other day my husband was working out in the yard as he does on a regular basis. Suddenly I could hear him yelling my name. We have a wooded area directly in front of our house separating it from the road. My husband was standing out near the far edge of our property hollering to me and waving me over. I ran out there wondering what was going on thinking that he might have found something in the woods. He said to look up as he pointed at a tree. This tree that has been there for 10 plus years. This tree that I have planted bulbs near its base and my husband has trimmed around has miraculously produced an abundance of beautiful apples!!! I know that I may sound silly being so excited about this but you have to understand that I know my yard and all the different plants, trees, bushes and flowers that exist. I constantly add to the eclectic mix and have been an avid gardener most of my adult life. There has never been an indication that this was an apple tree. Never ever were there fallen apples of any size or shape. Behold, as we have a tree that is mature bearing amazing large, red, beautiful apples! That day in awe I picked an apple and bit into it. The apple was a combination of sweet and tart and just the right amount of crispness. Several days later I am still in awe. Now we have the task of harvesting these amazing miracle apples as soon as possible.. All I can think about is the pies, tarts, sauce, cookies and cakes I will be making soon!!!! Did I mention that I think they are Macintosh !?
