Then I guess I won't blame your apple experience on Bush.

Seriously, my in-laws have an apple tree on their property in Virginia and we harvested several bushels in September...they were fresh, tasty and worm-free.

They’ve been frozen for 3 years. At least.

lost a good percentage of the apple crop in the upper mid west due to early warm weather then late frost. It killed of many of the blossoms.

I haven’t bought any apples since summer and they were very tasty.

Thanks, Mom...politics has me ready to go off a cliff myself these days. Funny you should mention apples...I noticed that the organic Goldens I buy from the health food store for my homemade oatmeal have no flavor. However, the ones from the local farmers market are wonderful...only not organic and probably full of pesticides. :)
