Sad.  That's all I can say I felt when I read this headline on mLive.  Sad.

Apple farmer says, "We're just growing trees this year."

It was the apple farmers greatest fear and honestly it was my greatest fear too, because no one in this country can grow tasty apples like Michigan farmers can.  Well, this season is pretty much a bust for West Michigan apple growers.
