I’m getting my dates mixed up. This drawing was made yesterday, the 20th, not the 19th as I have written on it. I think I have put the 18th on two works prior. Whatever. You know when I mean, even if I don’t.

I struggled with these apples, so am I am quite pleased – and surprised- that they turned out looking like apples at all. We have had a bumper crop this year from our three apple trees. These ones are the latest to mature; they’re quite small and are probably a little tart for most tastes. But great for cooking and juicing. And a beautiful deep red.

The eggs, unfortunately, are not home grown. Maybe one day.
