I learned, however, that many apple trees have "on years" and "off years" so while we went to the orchard this morning, we were bummed to discover that not a single gala tree was full of apples. There were a few other varieties, but not the ones we were so looking forward to.
Still, we came home with a huge bucket full of apples (I think I'll make applesauce!), some tiny little plums and two huge home grown pumpkins. Oh yea, and two very grumpy kids. But that was not because of the orchard, and it's a story for another day.
last year. Love looking back.
