Apples are the best they have ever been this year. Last year, I had 3 or maybe 4 apples due to a severe freeze when the trees were in flower. Therefore the trees were not at all tired this year and I have bushels and bushels. I have been making cider on the weekends and hope to again in a couple days. I found that if I mix different tart varieties and especially wild ones of no variety, I get the best cider. Now, I don't care as much for commercial cider. Northern Spy is the only apple I've been using that I know what it is.
