apple picking


on saturday, we took a little road trip to go apple picking.  the weather was absolutely beautiful, and the farm that we went to was so peaceful and serene.   we were amazed at how many different varieties of apples were available.  in total, we picked six types of apples: buckeye gala, ruby macintosh, honey crisp, daybreak fuji, crimson crisp, and royal courtland.

we had a blast picking as many apples as we could carry.  we left the farm with somewhere around 16 pounds of apples and a whole bunch of ideas as to what we can do with our stash of apples too.  it was the perfect way to kick off the fall season!

love, laurie

LOVE apple picking. We are hoping to go this weekend and again in a few weeks (when granny smith apples are ready). Can't wait to see what you do with all those apples!

Pretty day and pretty photos. I especially like the one with the cluster of 5 apples.

16 pounds?! Holy cow! I hope you can freeze them!

So glad you had a good time though! I'm so glad the weather is starting to cool down, and we can participate in all these fun activities! :) Love this time of year!
