Apple Harvest

#DoodlewashJune2021 prompt: Basket. Okay, so apples are gathered in barrels not baskets. But they both start with B, so I’m claiming it for the prompt.

Did you know apple seeds contain cyanide? Eat between 80 and 500 seeds in one sitting and you could make yourself sick! Apples aren’t the only fruit with cyanide in the seeds. apricots, cherries, peaches, pears, plums and prunes all have cyanide in their pits or seeds.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. What a beautiful, bountiful orchard! And yes….because I have chickens, I learned not to give them apples with seeds in them because of the cyanide. Who knew!? My hens are such picky eaters that I doubt I needed to worry! 🙂

  2. I could not imagine anyone eating 80 apple seeds. maybe Rocket??? hahahaa! beautiful painting!
