Tree Following: August update

The year seems to be flying by (did I say that last month too?) Our crab apple tree is now full of apples which are beginning to go red and many of them are now falling.

I love this tree most of the year, the blossom weeks are my favourite time, but I have to say that we are coming to the time when it is not quite as well loved… tiny, wormy little crab apples all over the path, getting trodden into the house with the occasional one falling on my head, hmm not so much fun.

Here are three I picked up this morning:

We still haven’t decided what to try making with them, but some sort of chilli jam might be an idea as I’ve got lots of chilli peppers growing this year too.

If you want more details of the Tree Following challenge and have a look at a wide variety of trees that are being tracked, head over to the Loose and Leafy blog. If you click on my Tree
Following category you can see my original post in March, as well as the monthly updates to compare the difference.
