Saying I'm a writer is just one way I define myself. I'm also a jewelry seller, a decorator, a foodie, a cook and so much more. I didn't have to think long on what theme to use for this year's challenge. Spring is the start of gardening for me, so let's talk about what's In My Yard .
Apple trees have come and gone over the years. When we first moved here, we didn't realized we couldn't let the horses around the trees without protection to the trunks. The horses chewed the bark, the sap ran and the trees died.
We saved some, planted more and then had a similar problem with the goats. This year I have planted a whole new orchard since I only have one Golden Delicious tree left and one Horse Apple tree (that's falling down). My 12 new trees are Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Gala, & Granny Smith.
What do I make with so many apples? We love homemade apple pie, applesauce and apple jelly. This year I'm going to give making apple butter a try.
