Had a few cantaloupe come in this week and they so good I had to get the sprinkler out to try and get some more to come on. Kids love them as much as the wife and I do. They came over and wanted the sprinkler to get them, so nice of big brother to put little sister in front of him, lol.

I have a few peppers coming in. Red Thai chilies and Tabasco Peppers. The Tabasco plants camp from the nurseries on Avery Island where Tabasco Sauce is produced.

Apple picking time. Neighbor lady stopped by yesterday and picked 20 gallons. Wife and I have picked another 3 gallons, quartered, and vacuum sealed.

This morning dropped off about 1 1/2 gallons at each of the dentist office and physical therapy office.

Going around inviting anyone who wants apples to stop by and pick all they want. Still have around another 20 to 30 gallons still on the tree.

What kind of apples are they? I don't know, semi-sweet and tart. Great for cobbler, jam/jelly, or apple butter.

Edit. Wasn't expecting much for an apple harvest. Apple tree was hit twice with Japanese beetles and then the prolonged, still in progress, drought/dry spell.
I have an excuse. CRS.
