Apple yield 2

On my way home I checked our apples trees out. The Worcester Pearmain were starting to drop on their own and were fully ripe so I picked them all, about 20 apples. The Ashmead's Kernel were also pretty full and large, and had started to drop some apples already, so I picked any that looked damaged and the largest (about 20 in total), leaving most on the tree.

I left the Egremont Russet, Orleans Reinette and Cox's Orange Pippin apples on the trees as they showed no sign of wanting to fall and still looked pretty small and weren't ripe when I tested them.

So far no wasp damage and I also removed any apples that had been attacked and damaged by other insects so that there is nothing rotting on the tree.
