Apple Picking

But I am so enthralled...

It's not autumn in New England until you've gone apple picking...so welcome fall!

I drove out to Honey Pot Hill, my favorite orchard, and was amazed at how full the trees were with apples. 

The weather was perfect: a crisp fall day. I wandered the rows of trees looking for the perfect apples. 

I came away with a bushel of Macintosh, Cortland, Macoun, and Empire apples. Plus some Bosc pears for good measure. 

There is really nothing better than a fresh apple, especially one you've picked yourself. Now I can enjoy the big batch of apple sauce and juicy apples as the fall weather really kicks into gear!

I'd love to take the kids apple-picking someday, but we're never there in the fall!

I love the wood ladder in the pics. I can't figure out why pick-your-own is more expensive that buying them already picked.

We finally went picking this past week (we had stopped at the orchard quite a few times to buy already picked apples but it's just not fall until we pick our own). Our favorites are honey crisp and cortlands.

Glad they had a good crop. I am living in Germany this year and usually in September they have a big festival here, but this year the crop was really small due to a freeze that killed most of the apples. So sad as I love when they take the apples to the town square and press them to make juice. So yummy!
