Hmmm, we have been studying apples and apple trees. Julia is loving the books about him, so we may have to celebrate by planting some trees also! Can you take them directly from the apple immediately or do they have to age a bit?

Perhaps we will make applesauce muffins for breakfast and baked apples for dessert.

Someone in another group made a post about apple prints, so maybe we'll do those.

I have a ton of applesauce right now so I am going to find something fun to do with it. Might make some bread with it.

Have some shopping to do? We have tons of great products at great prices. http://stores.shop.ebay.com/A-Christmas-Fairy

 sorry i didnt see your post boobah!!!

well anyway we've done this almost every year, some die some grow, but heres what i do

Put a bunch of apple seeds in a damp paper towel on a paper plate in the frig until the seeds split open. You'll see some sprouts in about 2 weeks.

when that happens let them get a bit longer than the seed its self, take out of frig and plant in small pot, not to deep, so i'd say about 1/4 inch deep in some potting soil.

be sure to water and keep moist when you feel the dry pottin soil. about every 2 days.

also keep the seeds in a warm place that gets some indirect sunlight, until you see the little seedling coming up! then put them in direct sunlight on your windowsill, but make sure they dont get to hot and shrivel up!

 then when spring comes around transplant into your garden! they do grow! since this is our new home now we will be doin this here.

im sorry this is probably more than you wanted to know!
