After years of pruning and waiting, we finally are going to have an apple crop here at home crap home. Are they the prettiest apples? No. Am I having to pick them a couple at a time as the birds start to get at them, yes. But they’re real, they aren’t loaded with chemicals or coated in wax, and they taste delicious.
I wonder how many people realize this is what apples look like when you grow them yourself on a tree that provides shade and home for birbs and whatnot. The ones you see in a store all come from carefully manicured orchards, and hell, out of every apple you see in the store prolly 3 are discarded for other commercial uses because they are ugly.
