A week ago, we had strong winds and a storm blow through here. I have 2 big, bushy apple trees in my backyard that has provided us with applesauce, apple butter, and apple pie filling. When this storm went through, it took one of my apple trees down with it. I cried and cried when my hubby and son had to saw it. I was thinking of all the things I could have done with the bounty it would have provided. Last year, we had so many apples I gave some to 2 other ladies to make applesauce and apple pie filling. This year, with only 1 tree, I won't be able to share. As long as we have the apples for us this year, I guess we will be happy.
