I discovered recently an apple tree in Swalwell, a couple of km from our house. It is on an embankment on Swalwell Bank and we spotted the ground around it carpeted with apples. I headed down there this afternoon and gathered about 25kg. The apples are not for human consumption. Instead, they are for the goats. They are a good addition to their diet and, just as importantly, they are free!
