We’re just home from picking this big bucket of beautiful apples. Now to peel, core, & chop them for the freezer. A fair barter with Johnny’s uncle for a basket of veg & scana mara.
We recently purchased our own trees, miniatures that mature at about six feet tall They should be tolerant of our harsh windy winters but for extra shelter, we planted them aside a high wall. They’ve already given us a few fruit, but not enough for storing. Between the three trees, we have four different types of apples as a couple of them have two varieties on the one tree.
Another barter I made this week was for a new phone. A co-worker was upgrading hers and her old phone was an upgrade for mine that was having serious technical difficulties. Although I offered her money, a basket of veg was her request. I’ll spare you a picture of my new toy, but it’s so much more reliable than the one being replaced. I hope she enjoys the veg as much as I am the phone.
Have a fab Friday and a wonderful weekend everyone. Melissa Xx
