If it isn't one thing, it's your mother! Love it, Rock! Hope you are up to doing the watering... I have been working outside this afternoon. Started mowing, then came to the apple trees, so decided to go ahead and clean up under them. I usually rake all rotten ones that have fallen early, then mow very short directly under the tree. That way when new apples fall, we can get them picked up right away, and not have to sort through the yucky ones. Lindsey and Lorraine already picked the apples that they could reach from the bed of David's pickup, but there are still lots of good ones up there. That tree is a Red Delicious that we planted over 30 years ago. Then I moved to a Yellow Transparent tree that we brought from my grandpa's house about 29 years ago...my grandparents sold their house and moved to be closer to my parents, so we brought some of their walnut trees, grape vines and this apple tree to our farm. Just taking a break to get a drink and hang up a load of clothes, then back on the mower. I feel so "washed out" today...the littlest exertion seems like "hard labor". But the weather is not going to stay nice for much longer, so I am trying to get some outside things done. Sorry I can't stay to visit...feel guilty just popping in, lol! Hope Granni is having a good time!
