Well, you could come up to extereme south Calontir the first weekend of
Oct. next year and see what you can find at the Lincoln AR Appple
Festival.  It seems, however, that if one looks, it is possible to find
fruit stands that sell positively divine apples (oh, SIGH!!) by the
bushel, the real apples God intended, not those hulking mutanats from
Washington State.

Concord vinyards and apple orchards, I'm going to miss this place...
