Photo of the day – Apple Orchards

I was walking around the property yesterday after the alpaca ordeal, and noticed that we have a boat load of apples and pears this year! Woot! I can’t wait til they are ripe to pick them. That is if I get to them before the deer do…

We were driving by a house just down the road yesterday and noticed that all of their apples were on the ground rotting. It just seems wrong. I don’t know why it makes me angry, but it is just such a waste of food.

The same people that are too lazy to pick their apples, are the same ones that go to the store and buy them. Why do people do that? Perfectly good organic apples 20 feet from your front door going to waste, and trucks delivering apples from around the world to your grocery store. Seems backwards.

If I had a wish, it would be to magically transplant all the un-used fruit trees somewhere else in the world where the food would be appreciated.
