The Gala apple tree in the front yard is ready to harvest.  Here where I live it is hard to get a good apple crop because it doesn't get cold enough in the winter, for long enough, to set a crop.  Only varieties that don't need a long cold snap are worth growing, and coming from an old apple growing family, I gotta have at least a few trees.  This one has done well almost every year, and this picture shows the first bowl of apples off the tree.  There are tons more, but I will have to get them this week, or they will fall off on the ground.  Time for some apple sauce, apple pies and perhaps some apple jelly.
