We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Orchards are all around NE- but regarding which will mail, don't know.There were several apple orchards within 5 miles of my childhood home in NE. From September to April there was always a half bushel in an unheated but unfrozen hallway. Apples and apples, all you wanted, all the time. Plain eating, apple sauce, cobblers, pies. Macs were good, but my favorite eating apple was Ida Red. Though the song was pretty good, also.
A crunchy Stayman Winesap will make me happy. But there are an awful lot of good apples: Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Fuji even the basic Red Delicious. The only apple i wouldn't cross a room for is Granny Smith - and they have their own special place in baking.
