The Big Apple

Sorry, New York.  I'm talking about an actual big apple here.  

We've been watching this apple for months.  You see, our apple tree produces fruit every other year and this year is NOT the year for it to make babies.  So when we saw this little apple starting to grow, we knew it was something special.

Normally we don't end up using our apples as eating apples- I make sauce or cider or butter, because our apples aren't usually the prettiest.  But somehow this apple was perfect!  You might look at it and see some spots or little blemishes, but it's by far the most beautiful apple we've grown.

I'm looking at our apple tree differently now-  I know what it is capable of and it just needs a little help to make all of its apples this beautiful.

Haha--I think your one apple on your apple tree could give the apple orchard we went to a run for its money!
