PLACES: Apple Orchard in Virginia
Fall is a beautiful time of year especially at the beginning when days are sunny and the air is just starting to cool. Even a few spontaneously warm days sneak in making it a wonderful season. When my best friend came to visit from Florida, we made it a point to do something simple that took in all fall had to offer.
I really love pears so I actually did more pear picking than apple picking ;)
After you're done picking, they weight and charge by the pound. They also had apple cider and jams for sale! We bought some cider and finished it within a day. It was that good.
Apple picking was something totally new for me and I loved it. If you live near any apple orchards take a day to enjoy this simple adventure and absorb fall while you're at it!
Have you been apple picking before? Is it childhood tradition? What would you do with a load of apples? Please tell me you bake ;) I'd love to hear your thoughts, you can use the comment box below!
