Monster Apples!

They're here! Just in time for Halloween! Monster apples! They're monstrous, they're huge, they're unbelievably delicious!
Check it out!This is the little tree they come from. This was back in May when it was in bloom:
This is the alder down the road that has a natural bee hive in it (we call it the Pooh Bear tree). This is where the bees who joyfully come pollinate our happy little apple tree live. (That vine around it is called man root, or wild cucumber. You can't eat it, apparently it's way too bitter, but it has roots the size of a man!)

Here's our apple tree right before I harvested three 5 gallon buckets from it. There's more to harvest! I hope I can beat the deer, birds, raccoons and possum to them.
And here's my crate full of apples.

I should have another full one tomorrow.

So what to make with all those apples? Jelly, apple butter, apple pie, apple cobbler, baked apples, apple sauce, fried apples (with pork chops of course) or just eat the fresh crisp apples? All I know is I love the smell of them. This is the whole reason I love fall. The smell of apples and falling leaves.

This reminds me of my Mom, Jerri, who made the best apple pie west of the Mississippi!
Happy harvest & happy fall!
