Sunlight filters through the leaves of the apple tree as I walk under it on this summer day. The round globes of green are still ripening throughout the summer. Early fall the apples should be perfect for picking.
Apple picking is popular during a Midwestern fall as people stroll orchards with bushels and baskets in hand. Then it’s time to press apples into cider, bake pies or make them into jam. As I walk under the apple tree, I can tell they are too green to eat.
In everything there is a season.
