Apples for Morning Tea

On Monday Don shared with me the first of our ripening apples. Taken a little too early from the tree I think, but in a week or so they will be very good eating.



We have discovered Moxie and Banjo also enjoy eating apples as the photo above shows. A couple had dropped from the tree and Don left them out from underneath the net for the King Parrots. However Moxie and Banjo were not interested in sharing with the birds.

  1. Our fox terrier (now chewing the big bone in the sky) used to love windfall fruit too - very strange for a carnivore.

    1. Well I will be thankful if they only eat the windfall fruit. I wouldn't put it past them to try picking the fruit off the tree - I have seen them pick cumquats.

  2. Well they’re certainly getting into those apples. Looks like a serious job.

    1. Yes it is very serious work. They have to eat the apples before the parrots can interfere :-)

    1. Our last dog. Chloe picked strawberries and tomatoes off the plant. Moxie and Banjo don't seem to be interested in those fruits but I have seen them try and find a way to slip in under the netting around the apple trees to try and get to the apples.

  4. My, the pups are growing! I hate the awkward teenager stage, where they chew through absolutely everything. So maybe an apple is a good reprieve for your garden hose and shoes. ;)

    Not sure if they're reached the awkward teenager stage, yet, but they look like they're close.

    1. You know Chris, they don't chew our shoes, but pretty much everything else is at risk of being chewed. Banjo the black pup has reached the gangly stage. Moxie was the runt of the litter so she is smaller and a bit more solid.

  5. What type of apples are you growing, Sherri? Are they tropical apples? I discovered such a thing when I was visiting a friend's property a little while ago.Meg:)

    1. We have three apple trees growing Meg - Tropical Beauty, Coastal Cropper and Anna. All three can grow and produce apples in the sub-tropics.
