It's going to take a long time to get these cleaned up. Compare to this photo from a few days ago.
I think I mentioned that another apple tree outside our back gate was damaged in Monday's wind storm. The tree was split vertically down the middle of the trunk. I was afraid that this was going to happen to our big apple tree (in the photo above), but it was spared, probably because it is leaning into the wind. One day it, too, will go -- there's already a large split in the trunk.
The damaged tree out next to the pond.
I ate a garden tomato for supper last night. Just sliced, with salt, pepper, a little olive oil, and some balsamic vinegar. It was great. The big tomatoes are ripening now. It won't be long before I'll need to make sauce for the freezer. In the meantime, we will enjoy fresh, tasty toms from the garden. What a treat!
