Special apple

I haven't been to the allotment for a while. My plans to go this week were foiled by children getting stomach bugs. I have mowed the grass at home though, so at least I have ventured outside.

We picked our special apple yesterday. It is special because it is our only apple. It managed to survive the summer of other peoples children trying to fell it with plastic golf clubs. To reward its resilience we cut it into pieces and ate it. Another bountiful feast where everyone gets a slice each.


  1. I envy you. My 'eating' apple tree had about 5 apples on it last week. This week when I went to check on them they'd all gone...???

  2. That is The Most Glorious Apple. I bet it was delicious!

  3. The little tiny slice that I had of it was very delicious thanks Kim. Really sweet.

    Rob, Five apples, a feast! I wonder if the apple scrumpers are the same ones that made of with your blueberries last time....
