Here is the unofficial Rifftides apple crop forecast for 2011. My friend Vigorelli Bianchi and I gathered evidence on an early morning cycling expedition. You see Vig resting while I photographed.
The forecast is for abundant fruit. This fall, there will be plenty of good red Washington apples to go with your scrapple.
“Scrapple From the Apple” by Charlie Parker, alto saxophone; Charlie Byrd, guitar; Bill Shanahan, piano; Merton Oliver, bass; Don Lamond, drums; unknown, bongos. Howard Theater, Washington, D.C., October 18, 1952.
