I picked my Liberty apples this week. They could have hung on for another few weeks but the birds had found them and were taking more than their share. A little tart but still a great tasting apple which should mellow after a little while in the refrigerator.
The bees were also liking the taste of the Liberty apple.
Liberty has a natural waxy "bloom".
Which easily rubs off and gives the apples a very shiny skin.
This is the second box the bear has torn down in this location. Time to move it somewhere else.
I had company in the orchard. A fawn who had just about lost his or her spots.
