Austrian apples


I got to help the Franziskusgemeinschaft men pick apples! 

Well, actually I was picking UP apples, the ones that came down while the brave men were 8 meters up on the ladders.

One apple fell hard on my back as I was bending over.
A sign of the times: my first reaction was "OMG I've been stabbed!"
I may be in Austria right now but my heart is in and with Israel as she bleeds.

The situation in your country is explosive, but it's difficult to understand how people can lynch an innocent Eritrean. This shows that sonething starts to turn wrong in Israel.

Just to be sure, so you are in Austria, not in Jerusalem? Oh, 8 meters is high - he rather than me! This work made for great pictures:)

Brave men! Don't stand under an apple tree. Be careful!

I would not do well on one of those ladders! Thank you for the visit to my blog.

I have never seen apple trees this tall. My heart goes out to everyone in war torn countries, and especially to Israel.

I never thought of this... it is so easy to pick up them at the market!

You can take the woman out of Israel but you can't take Israel out of the woman. Peace Dina.
I hope the apples made a warm and wonderful apple pie for you.

One wants to be careful on those ladders!

wow what big trees. I would love to be with you picking them. I picked pears from my daughters pear tree and if one of those hit ya on the head it would knock one out. Huge pears! I love fresh apples made into butter and sauce.

Wow! Those are really tall apple trees. I'm used to the shorter trees in the Midwest that are easier to pick.
