Ever wake up and realize you missed a food season? I missed apple season this year except for the one time I bought a few excellent ones at the greenmarket in oh about Oct.
Yesterday the smell of hot cider wafted up to 17th st, luring me down to Union Sq. where I munched a donut and cider. Grabbed a few apples which of course suck by now-they're selling the dregs.
Anyway, missed apple season.
