Windfall

There was a big storm the other night. I only hatched in the spring, and I’d never heard a storm before. It was like a big dragon crashing rocks down on the world. I wasn’t scared though. Not much.

But look, it knocked all the apples from the trees! Some of them are okay to eat if we collect ‘em quick. We’re gonna bake them into cakes and tarts and cook them into sauces and mix them into mincemeat… I’m not fond of apples as apples, but they do cook up nice. Some spices and some buttery pastry… maybe some cheese? Yeah, a bit of cheese.

Just gotta watch out for the apples with holes in. Sometimes they have wasps in. One stung my nose a few days ago.
