Photos of my grandson picking apples. There are varieties I've never heard of before and most are harvested at pick your own orchards.
What a wonderful experience for your family. We also here in Spokane WA. have a special harvest time in an area called Green Bluff and there are hay mazes, and you can pick your own apples and pick out a punk in and there is a country store and so much more. Nice for families to go to.
Your grandson is so cute and looks like he's having a good time.
Several years ago took my grandsons to an orchard in va. They loved climbing on trees and picking apples.
Bought back fond memories.
I'd give anything for a pink lady, my favorite apple, yummy.
Good memories. We used to live in Virginia and we took the kids apple-picking in the fall. (They're now in their 40s and we live in Texas.)
So many apples go to waste it is a shame. We have 6 apple trees in our yarn here in Edmonton and they do very well even though our growing season is a short one ( and even shorter this year with EARLY snow). We use the apples that come from our trees but I am in awe every year when I see dozens of trees shed their apples to the ground and the homeowners just step on them and put them in trash bags. We should be more thankful for the bounty of fruit that grows in our cold climate and if we do not want them, donate them to the less fortunate. My favourite apple from my front tree is a Goodland Apple that is juicy and crisp like a MacIntosh aspple and keeps well in the fridge for months. xo ws
I so agree with you, tat’sgran. I’m all in favour of free bounty! Last year we received apples from a neighbour; they were small so I peeled them and cut them up before freezing for pies. Great!
Last week we went to the mts. of South Carolina. Bought a bushel of Mutsu apples. These taste like a cross between a Granny Smith and a Golden Delicious. DH dries some to put in his oatmeal in the winter and I made applesauce and apple butter. It would be nice to have our own trees but fruit trees take a lot of care and need someone who knows what they are doing. We don't want the work and don't have the knowledge.
Bought pink lady apples all last winter from Sam's. My granddaughters favorite.
