“ What’s to be Did With Apples?”
There is no disputing the fact that farmers with orchards hanging full of apples are much concerned over the outlook.More than one grower has told the writer thatit will not paythem to pick fruit while the market remains asit is; and not a few will let the apples rot on the ground as there seems to be no other alternative.
