I've thinned my apple tree, and some have what I think are apple scabs. Can I put those in the compost bin, or should I throw them in the trash? Is it too late to treat with anything? There are many apples on the tree that don't have it so thinning is taking care of most of it. The variety is Anna and does well here otherwise.

Apple scab is called Venturia inaequalis or an ascomycete fungus. Its good to keep your leaf litter and diseased apples picked up and bagged and sent to the landfill to keep the fungus spores to a minimum.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
