Autumn is here again. The apple tree is laden with rosy apples. The trick is to pick them just when they are ripe, before the birds get them and before they drop from the trees. So far I have picked two baskets full of deliciousness, made batches of apple sauce ready for freezing and a eaten a few bowls of apple crumble. Rana was not impressed that her basket was full of fruit. Amazing how cats can get you to do things for them without saying a single word.
