Living off the grid can inspire us to grow our own food, including apple trees. Be mindful that the bears really appreciate this token of generosity and will make night raids to enjoy the sweet snacks while in the process wreak havoc on your trees.
Take time to smell the apples as your evening walks take you through the neighborhood. One of life’s simple pleasures can provide a great aromatherapy to the soul! These gorgeous local apples were given to us by friends here in East Helena and made an awesome batch of hand-pies! Helena is a great climate for tasty back-yard apples and those coveted, sweet, end of the year tomatoes.
