I keep telling him it's not a good time for red apples, is there some other apple he would like? Finally I get an answer...anything but green (I guess Granny Smiths are too tart). I found some local organic galas that were small but good. I'll surprise him with something else this week. Our own tree is in sad shape and only has 3 unripe apples this year.
He says an apple after his lunch is like a natural toothbrush.
This provides me with the opportunity to give you a good bad apple.
