On the checklist for my birthday this year was to go hiking amongst the fall foliage, go apple picking or do both in the same day. Guess what! We kind of managed to do that! Turns out some dear friends, their baby and baby's grandma were going apple picking last Sunday and invited us along. Thanks guys! Hiking was really only involved because the orchard was on the side of a hill and we pretty much traversed the entire dang place. This is what happens when you go on the last weekend of the season and red delicious are about the only ones left.
|Although they do make for a pretty photograph, right?|
|This guy spent years working in a produce department so juggling apples is sort of his specialty.|
|Literally, we were almost gone and I yelled "Are you flipping kidding me?!" and busted out the camera. Hello picturesque!|
And now, how the hell am I going to eat an entire peck of apples before they go bad? I'm thinking a batch of crock pot apple butter might be in order but I'm open to suggestions!
