    It has been a grat year for apples and many old varieties are being brought back to replace the mass produced carboard ones, they are so much tastier.

    Cheers Mark

    Very pretty photo, and that apple looks ready to eat. Happy GTS,

    Your apples look great – the photo is fabulous. I have a bumper crop of cooking apples to make apple jelly and pies and crumbles with – yum yum.

    Mark, actually, out here in Iowa, it was a terrible year for apples. Early warm weather followed by a weird late freeze blasted the apple blossoms — some of the orchard owners out here lost almost their entire crop.

    Aiyana, thanks so much — happy GTS to you, too!

    Sara, all those dishes sound delightful — and that reminds me…it’s been awhile since I made an apple crisp…I need to remedy that.

    That is a beautiful photo of an apple.
    All my apples are gone. I just baked my last apple pie.
    I’m on to pumkin pies now.

    Chigiy, I’m definitely ready for pumpkin pie — can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

    Adams County? I have ancestors from there, um, let me see… ackk, I can’t find it, I just have some Bruners from a small town there, and remember going to the cemetary some years ago to see their graves. Pretty country.

    Muum, it’s definitely pretty country, especially in the Fall.
