Had some (unphotographed) cauliflower tonight for dinner but still waiting their turn are these little honeys.
Stopped at The Barn at Kristy’s Barn and got Fortune apples, explained to me as a northern spy cross. I found this description on the web
A spritely apple with a slightly spicy flavor. It’s a cross between a Red Spy and Empire apple, and was created at Cornell University.
It is nice and crunchy and sweet enough so I’m giving it a thumbs up. Left to right: fortune, gala, lemon.

Fed me, fed the cats (them first) and then refilled the feeders outside. Moved a small christmas cactus and its resident spider from the garden to the porch to remind me to take it inside before frost.
Had a lovely dinner with cousin Ed and his wife and a bunch of friends of Ed’s mom, my Aunt Tim. Today would have been her birthday and this was a repeat of the dinner we had last year celebrating her 90th birthday. What a good time we had and Karen outdid herself on the food – totally yummy.
I came home and had a cup of tea to settle me in for the night and drew this.
Then I got an email from the Troy Music Hall announcing a bunch of concerts and, woot! one was Altan. I saw them once before there and I’ll be going again. The email was really about a Columbus day sale on tickets but I went ahead and plopped my money down without hesitation.
