Apple picking time is here
My favorite season of the year
Time to visit the Apple farm
Where beauties turn on the charm
Walking by bushels of every kind
A Gravenstein grabbed my mind
It told me a strange apple tale
Of some refusing to become a meal
There were also many other things
That really pulled at my hearstrings
It said Grannie Smith wouldn't be pies
That really bought tears to my eyes
Said that Golden and Red Delicious
Were tired of being billed as nutricious
Macintosh was angry with Jonathan
Pink Lady wanted to marry Braeburn
I had to tell Gravenstein to stop lamenting
The applesauce apple had my head spinning
After a minute it continued to relate
How the apples were planning to retaliate
Said that they wouldn't give any more juice
No more applebutter, caramel apples, no excuse
Gala and Roma, were jealous of Fuji and winesap
 All were beginning to feel they were in a trap
Suddenly there was a burst of music in my ear
I awoke to the morning sun bright and clear
That it had all been a dream was hard to believe
So happy I could go to the orchard I was  relieved
I couldn't wait to have my first slice of mile high pie
Thoughts of  those other apple goodies made me high!

Good one, E.T. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I haven't got a sweet tooth, so desserts of any kind just don't seem to call my name. :) Only advice I have to offer, is watch those calories when they come a-creeping!

God Bless
Lots of love
Lena

I loved this...and I just made apple butter with my students week before last, and am baking apple, pumpkin, and zuchinni bread tonight, your timing is great as the poem is too, I may borrow this one to read to my students next year, each September I center my entire month around apples, so right now I am headed over to your blog to check out your recipe...because guess what? I am finishing a fall cook booklet with my students, and we could use another apple recipe...great minds think alike!

You treated me to the complete harvest of senses with this pen. I can smell the spples and throw in a little cinnamon and the harvest is here. It is, indeed, apple harvest time. Here in Georgia we head to the apple farms in Cornelia, Georgia. Can't wait for some fresh apple butter.
Love,
Susan

I guess even apples gossip about one another.

I eat one a day. And there's a winery up in Julian, in the mountains East of us, that makes the most delicious apple wine. A high step away from Boones Farm.

Good mouth watering write ...
