Today is the first day of the A to Z Blogging Challenge, where I will be sharing some of my favourite things through the month of April. So, I present you with A is for…apple. Yes, really.
Not any old apples, the ones from the tree in my garden. I’m not naturally green-fingered, and my garden (a huge, ambitious garden inherited from the previous owners) is the bane of my life during summer months. One thing I do love about the garden is the huge apple tree at the bottom. Right now, it is beginning to fill with beautiful blossom, and come Autumn it will be covered in apples. The nicest apples you’ll ever taste. Just sweet enough to eat on their own, but tart enough to bake in a pie or crumble. We eat a lot of apple pie in early Autumn.
I love my apple tree so much, that last year I planted rhubarb, mint and tomatoes. Who knows, I might make a gardener yet.
