it’s harvest time

600_4040-e_wFall also means harvest in the northern hemisphere.

The apples in the basket are freshly picked. It’s necessary to pick them not before they are ripe. But, don’t let them in the tree too long. Why? It’s easy. At the end of October you have to expect night frost and the frost will spoil most of the fruits.

So, we picked all of the apples, when I noticed a temperature of only 3°C in the morning. Now, we have them save in our cellar waiting to be eaten.

Many years ago, a common believe was, that in the night between October 31 and November 1st a devil jumps through the country and shits on all remaining fruits, grains, veggies and crops and spoils them that way. Nowadays we know that this devils really name is frost.

Take care!
