Little Green June Apples......the production promises to be plentiful-the tree is loaded ! These make wonderful snacks for the grandsons and for the big people too :) This is an old heirloom apple that is used a lot to graft and help preserve other heirloom varieties.

Not good to eat right from the tree...a wee bit too tart...but peeled and thinly sliced...allowed to dry naturally ( spread on a clean cotton cloth and leave in a sunny location for a couple of days)...perfection and so good for us.

Once they are dried just scoop them into a storage bag and they will last for weeks/months. ( well, depends on who and how many are munching )

( to keep them from discoloring while drying...toss a few drops of lemon juice and mix until they are all coated. This will also help to preserve them .)

Hope your summer is playing out green and healthy ~

We are busy already....little green peppers, tomatoes are blooming, as are the's happening !

If your in my area, stop by for a cool glass of tea or lemonade...
