A Saturday Afternoon

Perhaps you would like to go apple picking with me? It was the last weekend for 'U-pick' at Lynd Fruit Farm. My mom and I went yesterday...the weather was perfect, why don't you come along?

Almost there...

Peeking through the trees...

Winesap apples, ready to pick!

Gold Rush Apples too high up for my arms to reach!

And this is what 16 pounds of apples looks like...don't worry, they keep 'til February. We made a delicious apple crisp when we got home too. This was my first time picking apples and it was so relaxing and rewarding. The apples really do taste better...I think I may have started a new fall tradition!

We love going out to Lynd's. All three of us went out about a month ago, but the apples were all eaten up in just 2 weeks, they were so good! So Hubby and son went this weekend again. Delicious! I've already made 2 apple cakes - one for work. We go early and go often. :-)

We're keeping them in the garage...so far so good! It stays pretty cool out there.
