These are better for cooking than fresh eating, Tim, but they do look pretty good for unwashed, fresh off the tree. Thanks for your comments!

Thanks for taking a look, Peter! It's been discouraging how many of my fruit trees have died of diseases they should have been resistant to, or for no discernible reason. I am not replacing the ones we've cut down or uprooted, and there are several gaps in the row now. Diseases have destroyed the crops of some, and insects have severely damaged others, despite a rigorous spray program. Other trees that look perfectly healthy have yet to give us a single fruit. It's almost as if someone put a curse on them. The apples are the only thing that did well this year, and I had to net the trees or the crows and other critters would have taken them all.

Great harvest, we have good crops on some trees, others flowered as we returned to frost and were never pollinated. It pays to have as many varieties as possible to spread the flowering season, fortunately we didn't loose any trees but several lost branches and top twigs in the chill winds.

Thanks, Jim! At least I HAD apples, LOL! My peach trees died, my cherries went nowhere, and brown rot got all my plums. The pear didn't bear because the pollinator died. So I'm glad to have at least SOME fruit from my orchard. Come on over; I have apple crisp and vanilla ice cream.

I like the looks, now throw in some crust and some heavy cream and I think I will be doing alright. Nice, but it sounds like you had quite a lot of work because of...

Thank you both for commenting! I have BEEN baking and cooking these things for weeks; as I said, this is the LAST of them. They are in a dishpan that is full; I have processed at least two or three dishpans full of them already.
