About a week ago, John, our friend Tom, and I went apple picking at the Stone Ridge Orchard nearby. The weather seemed just perfect, and the orchard was only muddy in a few spots, so it wasn’t too hard to walk around. It was great smelling all the apples and fresh autum air!
Just a few photos (click on them to see larger versions or buy prints and whatnot):
A number of the trees were already picked clean, but there were still plenty left and at least a dozen different kinds were available. We filled one of the bags with what we guessed was about 30 pounds of apples. We’ve made apple pie, apple sauce, apple turnovers, and eaten a lot of them straight. We still have a bunch of them left – I see at least one more apple pie in my future soon!
