Our own apple taste test
I rustled up another early Virginia
along with the first ripe Liberty apple so that Mark and I could
taste test them together. The Liberty we tasted had a
simpler flavor than the Virginia Beauty, wasn't as dense, and was
sweeter, all of which led to me giving it a lower score and Mark
giving it a higher score than the Virginia Beauty. (We have
slightly different apple tastes.) For the record, here are
our variety ratings so far for our homegrown apples:
Even though all of the apples were accounted
for, there was one more fruiting surprise waiting for me.
Last year at this time, the first
Chicago Hardy fig was ripening up, but the fruits all looked
stiff and green on Monday, so I figured they were running
late. Then, out of the blue, a fig tripled in size
Wednesday, and by Saturday there were three ready to eat!
The fruits are huge and numerous this year --- maybe we'll be able
to eat our fill for the first time?
The EZ Miser is our second-generation chicken waterer, even simpler to use.
