'In Training'...

Apple Harvesting 101: 
To find the best apples in late September, take a wander down to the old Lawson place. 
At the far end of the field there's an old weathered, silver wooden barn, half falling down.

Behind that there are 3 ancient trees.
The one at the edge of the rock wall on the west side is the one you want.
At this time of year they are sweet and crisp and fall gently from the leaning tree.
5 generations of raccoons can't be wrong.
