Oh, we had such a fun time apple picking in North Carolina last week! Surrounded by hundreds of apple trees, cool weather, and scenery the likes of which this Coastal girl never sees at home (there are no hills!), we were content for hours picking – and eating – apples.
We put all ages to work. My two-year-old neice, above, might have run away from manual labor, and the seven and eight-year-old cousins played quite a bit before filling their shared bucket…
but we certainly know how to work five year olds…
Oh, come on now, you know I’m kidding. They didn’t have to push too hard.
Everyone pitched in to help.
Yes, of course. Even me. I kept busy photographing. A day like this one
needs to be documented, so we won’t forget even the smallest of details.
Sigh. I do believe I need to buy an apple orchard.
While I’m lost in that unreality dream, do you have any apple recipes to share?
I brought back two huge cardboard boxes full of apples and need to do something with the abundance!
