build a potato gun with a 3" barrel and tell the kids to have at it. The apples will be in the neighbors yard PDQ.  Works with hedge apples and walnuts too

That is a lot of applesauce. Wish my trees were putting on like that. But my trees are only 4 yrs in the ground.
I actually had to cull some on one tree to prevent them breaking under the load.
The culls made a nice green apple crisp.

Up north one could freeze distill that cider. Put them in a barrel in an outside shed.
Break off and discard the ice every day till it no longer freezes and you will have hard cider.
That is how the old timers did it.

Our trees are loaded, to much in fact.  Should have culled a lot but when the trees are 15' high kind of hard to do so let them go.  Not real large either so will make cider out of the whole bunch.  don't want all that grass and junk in with the apples so will use a nut harvester to get the ground falls and a picker to get the ones on the tree yet.  About that time of year.  Talking rain the rest of the week here again so just maybe ? ? ?
