Liberty apples

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.
