[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] How You Like Them?

First, the photo:


Now, this apple tree actually does crank out some pretty tasty apples. Unfortunately, I don't spray the tree to keep the worms and other bugs out. The tree is just too close to the house, and it's kind of right above the neighbor's screen porch. I suppose, if I wanted to spray, I could just reach out the bedroom window and give it a nice spritzing; however, the thing is, if I sprayed, I'd have a whole hell of a lot of apples, and though these things make ridiculously tasty pies, I don't want to make two hundred ridiculously tasty pies.

I really don't need that many apples.

  1. Wow, you've got quite a crop there.  Maybe your local food back would take the extras off your hands. Apples are expensive to buy in the store.  At least here in Washington they are.  And we grow tons & tons of apples but they ship most of them out of state & we get the left overs for a higher price.  Linda in Washington state  

  2. Come on Dan! That's a terrific idea State of Washington had. Just toddle down to a shelter and give them away. And if it's to painful to reach that far for the apples, well, just put your "Clone" to work. Good deeds come full circle. Or something like that. Maybe it's "No good deed goes unpunished". Never mind. Put the "Clone" to work.
