fruit - this year's and last years

Two of the home trees and the allotment pear are heavy with fruit, so I've been thinning it out a bit. The only allotment apple has cramped small fruit, so I've taken some off that as well. Not necessary to do anything to the plum tree as there's only 3 plums!
Going to try and do something useful with it all though not sure what.

Meanwhile we've reached the very end of last year's apples. There were half a dozen or so, very soft wrinkly apples left - no good for eating, too small to peel, so sliced and semi-dried to add to breakfast.
These were our apples from the large pippin tree but we had lots from elsewhere in Autumn.

  1. we asways managed to keep apples in our root cellar through the year and these wrinklies look very familar,,
