Red Apple's - Grown by us!

This is our first crop of apples. The apple tree was a shrub (barley making it) when we moved into the house. Roon carefully staked it and nurtured it for a couple of years. We saw about five apples last year, but they were green and they did not survive the birds. We have a crop of them this year. We went to pick them in June, and out neighbor told us she thought they were red apples and that we should wait a while. She was right on! They are red and we are so excited about them. Most of them are still ripening - but we picked a few that looked ready. This makes me want to start a veggie and herb garden. Perhaps this will be my hobby in 08?
