A Sense of Place, A Sense of Home
My 365 Project (details of the project are on Sept 23 post)

10. Apple Hill - Haiku

apple crop
late this year
cold spring, cool summer

weather complications
harvest will go well
into november

had snow
warm weather
coaxed the apples along

warm days
apples catching-up
getting ripe

our favorite fruit
american as, well ...
apple season is here

lucky us
a bountiful apple supply
ready for picking

fresh, crisp and juicy
firm and heavy
avoid that musty smell

picking apples
off the tree
mature firm fruit

cut apple
rapidly turning brown
dipped in lemon juice

baking apples
cinnamon and nutmeg
brings back memories

  1. I was a city kid, so what did I know about growing apples? But it never really felt like autumn until the new shiny beautiful apples showed up. I thought 'empire apples' were the best invention ever. A cross between a mac and a delicious. Wow!

    There's something really special about your project Steve. Thank you. I am enjoying these so very much.
