We are fast approaching apple picking time, so may I offer to those who want to keep their apples over till next spring in a fit state for eating. I pack mine in shredded paper.
Layer of paper, layer of apples and so on till the box is full. Now I kept mine from September last year to well into early summer this year. I found it a lot easier than wrapping each apple.
It is well worth the try.
Worse thing to find in an apple is half a maggot. Where is the other half?

might sorta' fall under "is the glass half empty or half full ".. Well are "you half sick" or the worm half dead" maybe one to ponder as TxAnn used to say!!!:)
