Apple Picking in 80 degrees

10.13.2011

This was our third year in a row of apple picking so I think it's safe to say that it's now a tradition and it's one of my favorites.

I love apple picking. Especially since the orchard we go to is family owned and sits high on a hill with pretty views of the surrounding landscape.

On this particular visit the  delicious smell of apple pies baking in the oven filled the air inside the farm stand. Apple cider, apple bread and, various different pies were available for purchase along with pumpkins and other fall treats. We got a big ol' pumpkin and I plan on painting it.. preferably with a turquoise pattern. Oh yes.

Again, like the weather for our hike the day before, it was 80 degrees for this outing and it was funny to be sweating under the hot sun while picking apples.

Now all we need to do is find some sort of Oktoberfest or fair/festival and our fall season will be complete. I love fall things.

  9. Freshly picked apples are so so much better than store bought. Why is that? I don't know. (most everything is that way) But they are. :)

  20. love these pics, picking apples is awesome, espcially when you can make pies, jam and cider of em or just eat them as they are.

    And speaking about the weather, today the temperature is below 0 celsius...(which in fahrenheit I don't really know) but I guess you get it anyway. Freezing, literally. Crapland.
