That's a fine looking crop of apples my friend. If you were closer I would have took a half bushel off your hands.

Boy, I don't have any clue Frank. I'm not set up to ship at all. I'd have to think it would be expensive. Those medium flat rate boxes from usps are $12.65 and it would probably fit only about a peck or so. That would be way more than the cost of the apples!

Went out for a hike early this morning...no seng! I did have a good day at our roadside market and working in the orchard though.

Maya,
I've got to compliment you on your fruit. It's just as well grown as the looks of your ginseng diggings. Really professional work! It's no wonder that you sell out. I've got to ask you about the varieties that you have pictured? I want to think that last picture might be Honey Crisp, but you may still have some Galas.
I hope you have a sell out season.

Good eye Hugh...Gala! I decided to plant a tall spindle high density orchard which provides greater light distribution and air flow throughout the trees. Apples color much better, so much so that some people question the apples. I'm growing 250 Honeycrisp in the tall spindle orchard and 30 on traditional central leader trees. No question the tall spindle are better quality. Here are some HC's.

Maya,
Beautiful pictures of both varieties. Top notch pruning and training. In regard to shipping fruit...I bought a 22 lb. box of O'Henry peaches from McLeod Farms in South Carolina this summer and they cost just a little over $70.00. About 4 years ago I was paying about $40.00 for the same box. I could only dream of prices like that when I was growing.
