What would you do with about a half ton of bad apples?
We bought a repo for an investment. It had been deserted for at least one year and is located in the desert, there may have been a significant snow last winter but perhaps less than half inch of rain since.
It is a silly place to have fruit trees but someone planted several apple trees. They are mature, decades old, and spread widely and produced many small apples. Peach and cherry did not survive.
Anyway, we've perhaps a half ton -ok, ok, 500 pounds - of rather sad apples, golf ball size, some rotting on one side. No recycling or any such in the area. Open range beyond the fence but wild horses never come close.
