The Mama's Apples


Two of Mama's apple trees are producing quite a lot of fruit this year, unlike the past two or three years. Some of you already know about the story of her apple trees. So, please bear with me as I say again that the Mama's apple trees started from seeds of apples that the Mama ate about 28 years ago.

The Mama was told:

"They'll never grow into trees."

 "They'll never bear fruit."

 "You won't be around long enough for the trees to grow and bear fruit."

Ha. Ha. And, Ha!

The Mama tasted many years worth of apples from her trees.

  2. Whoever told your mama that has obviously been proved very wrong. I hope you enjoy the apples from her trees for many years to come :)

  3. She is still so much with you and this just proves it. I love it that this tree came from the seeds on an apple she ate

    1. I think the Mama was about 66 when she planted the seeds. I've still got four years go. Just think of all the fruit trees we could have if the Husband and I started planting seeds today in the front yard.

  4. It is truly a blessing to have the Mama's apple trees bear so much fruit this year. It's like she's still spoiling you with some of nature's sweets all the way from heaven. Peace!

  8. I'm laying low with a nasty chest bug and have little or no
    APPETITE.... then I saw The Mama's apples and I'm longing for a
    nice sweet crisp apple ! Fortunately it is our 0n- line food delivery
    day today and amongst the order is a big bag of Pink Lady Apples which
    are crisp and sweet and juicy even !
    I bet they're not as good as the Mama's.She'll be following you around
    her garden checking that you are tending to her beloved treasures properly.
    Now where's that darned delivery man ? I wan't an apple and I want one now!
    love n hugs,
    Di.

    1. Di, sometimes there is a crow that calls out to me when I go out and work in the back garden. I can't decide whether it's saying it's fine that I'm letting the land lay fallow or nagging at me to do better about picking up the leaves. Hope you're feeling better and the apple hit the right spot for you.

  10. I love apples! The skin looks rough and I've never seen an apple with rough skin. What kind are they?

    1. The skin is smooth. I applied an art filter to the photo which makes it look like the apple has texture. These apples taste like a cross between a granny and a yellow delicious. The Husband says that the apples won't be like the original apple that the seeds came from.
