I love the apple tree in my backyard. I know how lucky I was to purchase a house with an already established apple tree. You may remember me talking about our abundant apple tree a couple of years ago. Gorgeous right?
And then just a couple of months ago I posted just how excited I was after my husband’s pruning job to have those apples back again this year after a disappointing harvest last year. I held such high hopes after seeing these beauties.
That was until I took a closer look last week and found these.
*Imagine the sound of my surprised shriek here* Eeek!!! What happened? What happened to my beautiful apples? Anyone have any idea what this is?
There is a glimmer of hope however. A good half of the apples look awful but the other half still look pretty good. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that whatever got these apples won’t spread to all of them.
Can anyone fill me in on the problem and how to prevent it from happening in the future, if that is even possible?
