Our fruit which we have to much of.

Postby dalelesley » Thu Jul 02, 2015 12:38 pm

This is just one create of the apples and pears we get from our trees that grow down our drive way. From the apple we got 5 creates of mixed apples and from the pears we got 4 creates the wasps got heaps and the possums had a pretty good feed as well. As there is only two of us in the house it was way to much for us so most of it went either to Second Bite ( a charity that give to the homeless or hard up folk) or the age care home in town. I only had one complaint from an older lady who said the apples were great but she had trouble getting a good bite because of her false teeth. :lol: I am also told to deter the wasps white cabbage powder works and so does talcum powder has any one had any success with either of these products.?

You could make cider from the apples next year.

The mark of a good gardener - sharing extras with others. Well done. I am sure that such great fruit was very much appreciated.
