"Or we could go apple picking," he replied.
Our friends met us at our apartment on Sunday afternoon, and we piled into the car to head out to the country. Here are a few photos from our day.
At this time of year, the available apples were primarily Crispins (my new favorite!), Macouns, Galas, and Red Delicious.
It turns out that "as many apples as you can eat," is really just too many apples. On the ride to dinner we kept moaning about our sugar headaches and churning tummies.
On the way out of the orchard, we found that they also had plenty of turnips available for picking, so I got in and yanked a few out of the ground.
When we went to pay, the farmer's wife just kind of waved us away. "On the house!"
And I can't forget to mention the *real* reason behind this whole apple picking trip...
apple cider donuts, of course!
