One advantage of the damp British summer in 2007 is that
English apple trees are now laden with delicious fruits.
The benign neglect of our two apple trees at home
leading to the absence of any pesticide use, has
resulted a glut of what I am sure supermarkets would
describe as "organic" English applies.
Despite the delicious and largely unblemished fruit at home,
the local supermarkets fruit shelves are
still piled high with apples shipped in from
far away places. So much for concerns about global
warming and carbon footprints.
