it really is the little things...

three to be exact!

Early this Spring up at the cottage we planted three apple trees (Ida Reds and Honeycrisp). I couldn't believe it but, during our July trip, we noticed that one of the Ida Red trees had a few apples. We were pretty excited because when my husband purchased the trees they told us that they would most likely not bear fruit for a few years. Maybe next year we'll have enough to make a pie.

When we got up to the cottage this time, they were ready to be picked. I took some photos of our prized first crop, then picked two of the apples and left one to give to the deer. After my photos I sliced one to share for a snack.
