Apple Picking - More from Maine





Each fall (usually early October) that we are in Maine, we drag nephew Andrew along for apple picking. This year sister Mel and Matt were babysitting Brandon, plus Mom - so the whole gang was there! There is one orchard very close to our home that has the best apples and the easiest to pick.... of course we pay for the convenience and fun!!

We brought back enough apples to eat a fresh one every day for months and to make apple pies, applesauce, apple cake and what ever else sounds good to add with apples. Since apples do not grow in Florida, it is nice to have fresh, tart apples.

That does look like fun. We use to pick strawberries and blueberries but haven't done it in years. Hope you guys are well. Sorry we missed the gathering last Sunday but was happy to sit with Ms Liv so the birthday girl could be there.

Boy did Brandon have fun pushing the wagon w/the apples in it!!!! Wait til next year!!! He'll hopefully be pulling the wagon all by himself!
