It certainly looks like!
entirely organic - no spray - no treatment
with the most delicious flavor - like the apples I remember from my childhood
The fruit however, does not fully ripen until late June,
and when ripe the birds quickly devour them!
Very promising indeed, though we do need rain!
But please - not today on St. Jonhannis day,
because it is said:
"St. Johannis - St. John's rain spoil us the best nuts!"
Also some old German farmer proverbs for June say:
"Wenn kalt und nass der Juni war, verdirbt er meist das ganze Jahr"
'If June is wet and cold, the barrel and the barn are left empty'
"Soll gedeihen Korn und Wein, muss im Juni Regen sein"'For grain and wine to thrive, there must be rain in June'
June was and still is - for our region - rather cool this year,
but certainly not wet at all !
So, Que sera? We'll see....
