  1. Wow, that all looks SOOOO good. It must be just about a full-time job to get things like this! Love Jonagolds, good choice, they are just that right tart-sweet-crisp mixture.

    1. It doesn’t really take too much time, we both enjoy it which helps. 🙂 Good to know Cathy, I’m sure I’ve tried them at some point! The tree was given to us by a neighbour, its a lovely tree but this one is tough to pollinate, which is why she got rid of it, ha! I am a sucker for a challenge, so we’ll see how it goes:)

    1. Thank-you! 🙂 That’s great Karin! It is fun to see them grow, and they are far more hardy than I ever imagined. I’m sure they’ll do well,especially with extra TLC!
