From plums to apples

It has been a very good year for plums! I had really enjoyed a bountiful harvest. But even a bountiful harvest comes to an end. The tree is almost empty now! But I have two fruit trees, and they tend to take turns. By the time the plum tree is empty, you can start on the apple tree. And I did! On September 9 I ate my first homegrown apple of the year. And the second one as well, while I was at it. They were very good! So although there are still a few plums to go around, it is now apple season. Autumn is coming! And last year, I managed to stretch the harvest into winter, but this year the tree has more or less a year off, and I won't manage that. But I will enjoy it while it lasts!
