An Apple a Day...


These are "Honeycrisp" apples that are growing on one of the trees in our backyard. Ours are a little smaller than the original Honeycrisps that were developed at the University of Minnesota, but just as sweet, snappy and juicy. It's hard to get perfect apples as a backyard grower, and most are mottled or spotted. However, we were lucky enough to find at least one perfect specimen. :-)

This apple looks just right, yummy. I have no garden here where I live but I have a friend with an allotment a short walk away and I was down there looking at her apples yesterday.

I like the Honeycrisps. They sell them in the Fall at the farmer's markets here (oops - it is almost fall already isn't it? I'm not ready - I'm still in summer berry mode.)
