Fall is time for apple picking and pumpkins and cider. We took our semi-annual trip to the Outhouse Orchard with some friends. There were six of us so we rented a mini-van, and bought some pastries for breakfast and headed north. This is the first time we’ve actually PICKED APPLES at the orchard. Usually it’s about the cider and the donuts, but picking apples is so much fun. Mostly we used the apple picking claw, but at times with a little boost from someone tall were able to pick with our hands. There was no tree climbing or apple throwing allowed.
I think we ended up with 30 – 40 pounds of apples. We split them up, but Rob and I ended up with the bulk. There are just enough left for a pie. Yum!
