Rotten Apples

Well, the moment we all have been waiting for has arrived!

The apples are ready to harvest. I would be slightly more thrilled if the apples weren't rotten. Not sure what went wrong, but all the apples have black spots on them {YUCK}.

Jack has been begging everyday to pick the apples, so rotten or not, he was super excited.


This was the best looking one...

Our neighbor tasted and reported it to be yummy, I will just take her word on that :)

Only one of our four fruit trees produced fruit, so I won't be making apple preserves, or apple pies this year! Maybe next year...

COLLINS was ok with apple picking, but he would much rather be on the deck building...

We have put lots of lumber, nails, screws, hammers, and drills on the deck for them to play with and keep out of the sun. { safe... I know }

They love it!... this little boy especially :)

Hey Courtney!

We always had an apple tree out front and the apples would get black specks/spots on them too. It was just a fungus, and is why commercial orchards wax and spray apples. :) So, maybe if you are lucky, that is what it is! It should just wash off, and the apples would be perfectly safe.

Of course, if they are the mushy rotten then there is just no denying that something went wrong! Hope not. Good luck.
