A Sad Break

Apple time!

Well, it's a little early, but our tree...
For some reason (found weak spot from previous injury) dropped a very large limb suddenly yesterday...
That's a 5 gallon bucket sitting next to it for scale...
 which we then filled up 3 of them.
Spencer and I tried to drag that limb towards the burn pile, but not only could we not due to it's weight, but I got to thinking. Apple wood is a good one to season and burn, and adds flavor if used for cooking. So a friend will stop by with a chainsaw to help us out.
So apple sauce, dried apples, apple butter, apple pie filling....and heat and flavor. Seems like good save to a sad limb break.
