We have a Gala Semi-Dwarf apple tree that we bought in a 5-gallon container for about $10 on clearance a few years ago.
This little powerhouse (we'll call her Gale) is capable of producing oodles of apples on a weekly basis.
This evening I took a small basket out to pick the ones that were ready and quickly realized how much I had once again underestimated Gale and her ability to be fruitful and multiply.
I turned to Mr. Zipps, who was just over the fence, and pulled out the ever-classic, best movie line of all time.
WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT.
So I've got about 10 or so pounds to use up. Last week we had baked apple pouches and chunky applesauce. This week was apple crisp. What applicious delight should I make with these?
Keep it up, Gale!
