Your FSA/OWI Photo of the Day

Some people believe this is your best apple variety. When it's an early Mac fresh off the tree... I can't disagree. And at 25 cents a basket... is that a good deal? Well, 25 cents in 1939 is worth about $4 today using the CPI, or about $11 using wages ... yeah, I'd go for it.
