Yesterday, my children had the day off from school. The weather was crisp and dry so we decided to go apple picking.
The orchard was empty of people and the trees were full of apples. The children sampled many and we picked a lot. Today has seen several quarts of applesauce put away for the winter and two apple pies cooling on the counter. There are still enough apples to keep me busy through the weekend with more canning and baking. And then it may be time for another trip to the orchard to pick some more. This is my favorite time of year so it will be nice to sample it once winter comes along.
