Even more apples in my garden :-)
Even though I took two long naps yesterday I still went to bed around 9 pm and I feel asleep immediately. I’m a bit tired of this cold now but I guess it will follow me for quite some time yet, several people at work have it now so I’m not alone. It would be better if it just gave me fever so it could go away quickly and not just simmer like it does now 🙂
My garden looks so much bigger now when half the apple tree is gone 🙂 I’ve never truly understood how big that tree was (and still is actually). So now I’ve started to wonder about what to plant in that big open space. No tree, I have an Osage orange growing by the fence already so I think it will be some bushes and high grasses. Even though I know my dogs love big open spaces I also know how much they like to walk around beneath those twigs and branches, making paths that no human can see. Perhaps the badger would like them too 🙂
The rain wasn’t supposed to start until around noon today so I wasn’t the least surprised when it started pouring down as soon as we set our feet outside the cottage around 6 am 🙂 So we only walked a short distance and when we came back home it stopped raining again 🙂 🙂 🙂 But it is fairly warm so I do have the kitchen door open between showers.
I got rather surprised this morning when I looked at my fan-shaped apple tree (yes I have lots of apple trees here 🙂 ). I saw apples on it! I hadn’t even seen any flowers on it ever 🙂 I remember sowing that seed but I can’t remember what kind of apple it came from, probably from one of the trees in the garden though. I can see at least seven apples on it and I did try one. It is a winter apple, one that ripens rather late in autumn and can be storage all winter in a cool environment and still be just as tasty when spring arrives. I have to say that it tasted rather nice now even if it wasn’t ripe at all 🙂
I guess this will be the day when i watch dvd’s all day instead since it most likely will rain on and off all day. I made the cobbler yesterday and it was so, so. The nectarines didn’t taste much I’m afraid, not even the custard helped much. It would most likely have been better just to drink the custard and skip the cobbler 🙂 🙂 🙂 In the bottom of this post it says Badger. If You click on that You’ll be able to see a short video on how dangerous 🙂 🙂 🙂 our badgers are. You’ll be linked to a swedish news paper so I guess You’ll see some Swedish commercials before You can see the video itself.
Have a great day!
