Hordes of Honeycrisp

It was time to harvest the 'Honeycrisp' apples as more were starting to fall off the tree.  You can see the final harvest total - nearly 16 pounds.  We ate easily every bit of that before harvest and probably half or more of that was on the ground as cattle treats dues to damage.  These are totally organic apples - I know I've been told for years you just can't grow apples successfully without spraying, but on our one and only dwarf tree, it seems to be working out just fine for us.  And since apples are the most chemical laden fruit you can get, I'm stickin' with mine
