The Harvest in Earnest

I didn't bother to count all the kinds of apples for sale in Davis Square earlier today.

I just went ahead and bought Golden Russet, Macoun, Ashmead's Kernel, and Westfield Seek-No-Further.


  1. I wish. At some markets there are bins of apples labelled 'orchard run'. I bought some last week and was sorely disappointed when I found them to be soft and mealy. I suspect that they are from last year. Our local apple (and pear) crop is non-existent as we had a late, hard frost. What few apples there are on trees are all full of maggots and scab. It's a sad situation this year.

    1. Karin, how disappointing! I hope you can find some fresh fruit.


Join the conversation! We'd love to know what you think.
