  1. Spent a pleasant part of the day picking these babies out in back:

    These are Golden Delicious Apples allowed to ripen on the tree.

    What do you use to keep the moths off them? I have a few apple trees but the apples are wormy as hell.

  3. I use dormant oil spray and pheremone traps. Does not get all of them but I get about 50% worm free apples. Of the 50% with the worms, this is not for the squeemish but cut the yucky parts cut out and the rest put into apple sauce. I also compost any and all dead fall apples plus any not worth keeping. This year was a good apple year, harvested two 5 gallon buckets with more yet on the tree, at least twice that still ripening.

    nothing like tree ripened apples (or any other fruit) after living in Da U P of Michigan and having apple trees on the property, I won't eat a store bought apple again.
