Fall and apples just go together here.
I have memories as a child of someone always having an apple tree
that brought as many apples as you could eat.
That is, if you could find one that didn't have a worm living in it.
Dad planted apple trees after I left home.
He took great care not to let the insects, worms and birds feast on them.
He said he remembers the first time he took apples to town to sell
he promised folks they were clean of pests.
The very first apple someone bit into
had a worm!
Yes, we laughed.
A good memory.
