Hurry Up Apple Dessert

I was raised in a small town. So, you knew everyone in town. We knew the folks at the apple orchard. Us kids love to run through the apple orchard. We would shake a tree to get those apples. We also would climb the tree to get those apples. We'd wipe the apples off with our shirt and eat the apples before we got home.

One day mom said to us kids, “ ya know, you have to check the apples for worms”. Well, that put us kids on alert, but that didn't stop us. We still crab those apples. We never did see any worms.

Here's a bit of info...

Apples were brought to North America with colonists in the 17th century, and the first apple orchard on the North American continent was said to be near Boston in 1625. In the 20th century, irrigation projects in Washington state began and allowed the development of the multi billion dollar fruit industry, of which the apple is the leading species.

Until the 20th century, farmer stored apples in frost proof cellars during the winter for their own use or for sale. Improved transportation of fresh apples by train and road replaced the necessity for storage.
