Grandma's apple tree in August. Bowing under its burden of all-natural organic produce. Or yard apples, as the old-timers call them.
Grandpa says it's a volunteer; came up years ago from a pile of kitchen scraps.
Old southern heirloom or grocery store variety? Read somewhere that each apple seed is genetically distinct - perhaps that makes this one an entirely new breed?
Either way, it seems to like it here. Old Johnny Appleseed would be proud.
They sure clean up nice!
Fun to cook, and even more fun to eat, 'specially with a little cinnamon and sugar in the mix!
Maybe tonight we'll make us an old-fashioned apple cake with brown sugar glaze.
Old apple tree grows smiles as well as fruit!
