Alameda apples and tomatoes….last call!

Fall is here and I’ve now salvaged the last of the tomatoes, and picked almost all the apples.  If you don’t do non-tech picking, you won’t recognize the orange basket of the over 8′ apple grabber.  It really works, except if the apples bong me on the head, instead of staying in the basket!

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
