We’re still eating last year’s apples

It’s May 19 as I write, and we’ve not had proper rain for what seems like months. I do hope we get some soon, or the crops are going to feel it.
But the good, nay, astonishing news is that we are still eating apples from last year’s harvest. Normally they’ve all shrivelled away into little piles of brown rot (not unlike the offerings of a rather poorly horse) by mid-March. So we’re two whole months better off this year. Why? I wonder. Can it be the hard winter? Can’t see why.
Anyway… we’ve got a whole bucket left, so we may just make it into June. Crikey…
For the record, the apples that have kept the best are Sturmer.
