Can you believe I was up at 6:30 am and running outside to pick apples and squash? I forgot all about them yesterday and when I woke so early and looked outside at the winter wonderland I decided it was still only (!!!) 32 degrees and maybe the fruit wouldn't be frozen yet. I know it always is colder before the dawn so I got up and got bundled and picked one whole box of apples. Still gobs and gobs left on the trees. Then I went around to each of the fruit trees and shook the snow out of them so they wouldn't lose any branches. It is still snowing lightly but the temperature has gone UP to 33 now so I don't think they are in too much danger of losing branches now. The cherry tree is SOLID ...I shook it and it didn't move!! WOW
I also picked the winter squash that i could see!! It was still dark out and everything is covered with snow.
MAN!! I think I will get out my Christmas Music!!
