Plans to Plant a Tree

Remember my previous post in which I said that I went apple picking with my fiancée?

Well, I was eating one such apple the other day, and two of the seeds fell out. I immediately decided that I'm going to plant an apple tree.

I collected all the seeds from that apple, and they are currently germinating in my refrigerator. Some light research tells me that I'll need to keep them in there for six weeks before I can plant them in a pot, so I plan on updating you all with the progress of that little project via this blog (notice the label "apple tree" attached to this post, all the updates will have that label so you can easily find them all).

The apple in question was a Golden Delicious, which are probably my favorite to eat on their own. My fiancée, on the other hand, loves McIntosh because she loves to bake with them, so I also grabbed a few of those seeds so we can try to grow a McIntosh tree as well!

If I'm going to plant any trees, they're going to be ones that give me more than shade.

Autumn has Arrived!

I'm sorry that I haven't blogged yet this month, but I've been incredibly busy with work during the week and with having an amazing time with my fiancée on the weekends.

In fact, here's a photo of me holding a basket full of 12 lbs of apples we picked this past weekend!
I absolutely LOVE Autumn! It's the best season out of all four in the year (five if you count both winters, chronologically speaking). So apple-picking was a fantastic way to start off my favorite season!

Unfortunately I don't have any awesome and long blog post ready quite yet, but in the meantime check out my short stories, now on GoodReads!
