Mostly Harmless

Earth rising over the Moon.

On December 2 of this year, when things are usually pretty quiet here, the traffic to this little blog suddenly went through the roof.

On Twitter, Matt Haughey, who has a preposterous 28 thousand followers, had tweeted some very nice things about my blog.

Temporary internet fame ensued.

The Two Sisters

Two apples, one round and red, the other cylindrical and a mix of peach and green
Once upon a time there were two sisters, Lucy Glo and Lucy Rose.

Lucy Glo was the tangy one, Lucy Rose the sweet.

Or so they say. Today, we'll see.

A good many apples

It's easy to see a list of all the apples I review on this blog, if you are reading this on a desktop computer.

A long tasting table, with scores of different apples.

Just scroll down enough and you'll see the list in the right-hand sidebar.

Some of you are reading this on a phone or tablet and the sidebar is hidden.

For you, all my apples (as of today) are listed below as clickable links.

Lucy Rose

I had to travel all the way to Colorado to find this apple from Washington State.

Apple with saturated crimson peel sliced to show magenta flesh. An unfolded Swiss Army knife is also in the picture.

Lucy Rose, and her sister Lucy Glo, are in supermarkets in many parts of the U.S. They have not, however, made it to eastern Massachusetts.

This does seem to be the Year of Red Flesh here at Adam's Apples, does it not? Lucy Glo is also red fleshed, though she is otherwise unlike her sister.
