Ha - I remember that one! Tongue

Nah - I am a huge fan of pears and apples - since I was a little kid, according to my Mom. I eat at least one or the other each day if I can. I'm quite nearly obsessed with apples and devour any new findings about them.

Scientists have recently discovered a group of enzymes specific to apples, which seem to have extreme preservative abilities. There is even a cosmetic company buying up apple groves to naturally "manufacture" this enzyme so they can do further research and of course, put in it their skin products.

I suppose I can imagine putting applesauce on my face... but personally, I'd just rather eat them. Wink

That reminds me - I need to stroll to my apple trees today. I can see red ones hanging there... time for some tasting and picking.

Ooh - I'm envious. My family farm lost quite a few trees this year - we lost mostly apple and pear trees. I'm not certain what happened yet; we'll have to figure out if it was just weather conditions or that borer beetle thing or some plague. Who knows - I just know I'm gonna be actually buying my fruit for the first time in quite a while. Confused

My friend lost many of his really old trees to that evergreen plague sweeping the US. He had some huge, 40 year old pines he had to take down - they were gorgeous one minute and in less than a month they were crispy, brown, and dead. It was unbelievably quick and such horrific devastation - I hope that shit is gone and never comes back. Undecided

We are beginning to deal with the emerald ash borer around here which sucks because it's a fairly heavily forested area and well over half the trees are ash. I have 9 very large mature ash trees on my lot.

Carrots are cold because they are orange.

beginning? Here in Michigan almost no ash trees are left. I had 2 dead ash trees on my property, and a third
fell onto my property. It was my neighbors tree that fell on top of my fence.
