    Depends on the variety, but from what I remember reading it is in the 2-5 year range. Good for you planting cider trees!

    Six pounds of water loss? That's huge. Smart that you stopped when you did.
    I've heard stories of antlers tied to does heads..... nuttin wrong with a rant now and again!

    Kind of makes me wish I planted it five years ago. Especially given the following fact:

    •It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.

    Ah, I am going to steal that as my fun fact of the day. Sounds like you need to plant a few more trees
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Got in a 3 mile run today... it was in the mid 80's with humidity in the 95% range.... oh what wet fun we had! lol not really. The first 2 miles werent all that bad.... the last one, the heat jumped on me like a 900 lb gorilla.....
    So I goes in the house, slug down some cold water, then go back outside to mow the lawn.... thank the gods for riding mowers! my yard is probably 2/3 of an acre, and with all the rain of late, the grass was near 6" high and wet.... took a while to mow. running shorts and a sweat wicking shirt are ideal for mowing..... and Angry Orchard would have helped, but alas none was available.

    The other day I harvested a butt-ton of rutabaga..... Have to figure out what to do with them..... I guess fridge-bound they are to be eatten...... maybe a rutabaga sheppards pie! They've gotta be better for ya than potatoes!
