WPC: ONE SHOT, TWO WAYS

My in-laws have an apple orchard which they planted more than 30 years ago to provide fresh fruits for their growing children.

Decades later, the trees still yield fruits for the enjoyment of their grandchildren.  Three summers ago, there were so many apples that we were able to make not only apple pies, but also apple cider.  That was the first time I ever saw apple cider being made.  The older boys, then about 5 and 3, helped turn the wheel of the apple press.  That was a pretty special time for them.

The year after that, my MIL made a lot of apple jelly for their use.  However, they had so much apples that hey were able to bring us some when they visited us.  My MIL showed me how to make apple jam at home.Green Apples2

 

But the apple trees have grown a bit older since then.  They no longer bear as good fruits as in the previous years.   In addition,  the wet April weather  adversely affected their apple  harvest this year.   The rains ruined the flowers, and consequently, the fruits, as well.   The trees in the orchard have less fruits while those that are available are tiny and blotchy, if not deformed.

Anyway, that is the story of the apples you see here.  I took these pictures one afternoon while the sun was going down.  The light changed (I think a cloud covered the sun) while I was adjusting my camera to portrait mode.  That is why you see a brighter light in the first picture compared to the second.

Thank you for coming by. 🙂
