Wild Apples and Heirloom Tomatoes

Soon I will send Lance out with instructions to bring me a wild apple pie.

Well, I’ll ask him to bring me the apples for a pie, anyway.

He picks up the apples off the mountain, peels them, and bakes them into fabulous pies, but I also do my part by requesting the apples, then appreciating and eating the pies.

Here are a couple of apples (plus a perfect acorn and some buckeyes) that came home recently in Lance’s hat.

Our next door neighbor also dropped off some of the most delicious yellow tomatoes I’ve ever eaten. I think she canned a lot of them this year, because we both laughed over the idea of the yellow sphagetti sauce she’d be making this winter from them.

I made a little pile with wild apples, some of her tomatoes, and some other heirloom tomatoes I had bought at the farmer’s market earlier.

Here’s a plate of the yellow tomatoes, which look green in this light, but they really are yellow. And delicious.

I don’t mind the idea of yellow spaghetti sauce! If it tastes this good, I’m happy.

Bonus: Here’s a round, curly Pippi. You’re welcome!

  1. How wonderful to have someone not only find the apples, but make the pie. The tomatoes sound so good; my husband dearly loves the yellow ones, and especially the pink and yellow striped tomatoes.

      I used to be the one who did all our baking, but in recent years he has made the effort to learn, and I have 100% enjoyed his efforts!

      And I definitely agree: stripey tomatoes are not only delish, but so pretty, too!
