Apple piles

It only took about an hour, or less. I raked up the apples under two trees, then put the apples from each pile into a wheelbarrow and dumped them into the compost pile. I made about six trips. Tuesday morning was warm and a little humid, and the biting bugs were swarming. I had to cover myself with bug spray. But the job is done, at least for now. There are still a lot of apples on the trees.

The grass is parched, so I don't really need to cut it now.

Today my plan, as I said yesterday, is to get the chainsaw out and cut up those fallen limbs and Callie's grape vine trunks.


  1. Ah, bug spray. My summer fragrance when we lived in Connecticut.

  2. We need a lot of bug spray in Alabama, also. Those apples are abundant and a bit of a problem.

  3. mitch, yes, it's intoxicating.

    evelyn, and these are the two small trees. Fortunately, the big tree has zero apples this year.


Tell me what you think!
