|'Enterprise' and 'GoldRush' apples well in a refrigerator for 6 to 8 months, taste great, and can help people lose weight. I took these apples out of our cooler today to take this photo.|
Apple prices are now $1.00 less for each 20 lbs. than last fall. Smaller amounts of harvested #1 apples are still $1.21 per pound + tax, but 20 lbs. #1's are now just $22.29 + tax ($1.11 per pound), and 40 lbs. #1's are just $42.73 + tax ($1.06 per pound). Lesser amounts of harvested #2 apples are still $0.83 per pound + tax, but 20 lbs. #2's are now just $14.86 + tax ($0.74 per pound), and 40 lbs. #2's are just $27.87 + tax ($0.70 per pound). You can also get the 40-lb. discount by buying 20 lbs. #1's and 20 lbs. #2's.
We'll have apples for sale for the next 5 months, and from Dec. 1 to May 31 we're open by appointment, so call or e-mail a day or so in advance and leave a message saying when you're coming to get apples. If you want apples, we'd appreciate it if you'd come to get some soon, since our cooler is full and we still have a few stored in our garage, where they're protected from this cold weather.

|I hand-harvested the lower limbs of the young pecan trees around our house last Sat., and Bill knocked the pecans from the upper limbs with a pole and picked up the nuts from the ground.|
