It had been a bit windy; Storm Ellen had visited. It hadn't done much, but on my running route I did spot an apple tree that had keeled over. I had already been snacking from it. The apples weren't the best, but they were edible! So now it had fallen over, would the council remove it? I figured I had better come back with a bag and harvest some. One wouldn't want to let them go to waste! And so I did. As they are not the best hand apples I figured I should make apple pie.
When I ran past a few days later later (I have several running routes) I saw that most of the tree was indeed gone! I had made the right call. Now wait for the weekend and find time to make that apple pie!
