The apple season

September is usually the month of harvesting apples from the trees. However, the apple trees in our orchard are young and only have a few apples so far. My neighbors’ trees, however, are always full of apples and as good neighbors they are very willing to share.

I like to create Apple Jelly and Chillies with these.

It’s strange how apple trees are very social plants, just like us humans. They are happy when accompanied by other apple trees but not necessarily trees of their own kind but of other varieties which help each other grow. There are over 7,500 varieties of apples in the world and all of them have an important contribution.

We should be proud of our diversity as human beings just like apple trees, rely on each other and celebrate our differences to grow strong and healthy.
