For this post, I really should have a photo of a Regent apple. This post doesn't have anything to do with this barn that is a few miles south of our house. It has to do with a very sweet story.
Last week, our young neighbor and her little boy stopped at our place to deliver two apples to our house - one for me and one for my husband. It was the little boy's idea. He had heard (and remembered, evidently) that we didn't get any apples from our tree this year because after it had blossomed, we had a hard frost. Hence, no apple crop for us.
Simon, the sweet little guy, having just been to the apple orchard with his mom and two sisters, thought he would like to share an apple with us.
He gave a Regent to me and a Cortland to my husband. I don't know about the Cortland, but I'll have to say that the Regent has just become my new favorite apple. I've always been loyal to McIntosh, and even bought a second McIntosh tree to have in our yard, but now I'm thinking I need to look into purchasing a Regent apple tree. That apple had all the qualities I like in an apple: sweet but not overly sweet, and not dull, but very juicy and crisp.
Thank you to Simon for thinking of us!
After taking the photo of the barn and uploading it to my computer, I zoomed into see if there was anything inside the barn. There was! It was an old Farmall tractor, like ours, pictured above.
