We went to a friend's recently who happens to have several apple trees, and we were able to pick some! I was wanting a few for pies, crisps and eating. Apple picking is a fun and easy occupation, especially when the weather is lovely and there are some other neat people there to talk to - so we ended up with more than I had set out to get, but not unmanagably more, given how apples keep. We will be enjoying our apples for quite a while! We have already enjoyed one whole apple pie, and started in on our second!!
