Some of my apples are starting to fall [not too far be-dum ] from the trees. And when that starts happening it literally is apple season.
If you don’t have an apple tree… then maybe now is the time to think about planting one… or some, as they [most] will need a partner for pollination. The beauty about apple trees is that there is literally, all things going according to plan, nothing left to do once planted except to wait for the fruit to grow.
To make life very easy for you…
Apple Day is Sunday 27th September in Sonairte Ecology Centre [a little favourite spot of mine] in Laytown, Co. Meath.
According to Sylvia Thompson of The Irish Times
Visitors can take tours of the fruit orchards, learn about planting an orchard and buy native Irish apple trees. Children can also enter apple peeling competitions, apple quizzes or bob for apples
I popped on over to the Sonairte website however… and personally I’m really looking forward to this one
