Albany High Garden Club members picked perhaps a hundred apples from the old apple tree near the teachers’ parking lot on Monday. With the right tools now in hand, the take will probably be several times that next year. And wouldn’t it be great to get another tree or two in the ground in the spring?
Club members took apples home. They’ll share a bucket with food sciences teacher Eleanor Sicluna. And they’ll offer apple slices in the school in the days ahead as a vehicle for talking up joining the club and taking an interest in our plant endeavors.
