Apple Picking

We took a short roadtrip and spent the afternoon Saturday
apple picking at Soons Orchard in New Hampton, NY.
There are rows and rows of apple trees.

Apples ready for picking on each tree.

So many apples on the trees this year.

Take a look at the top branches! How do they stay upright?

We took this one home. Actually, we took 12 lbs. of apples home!

Some green apples too...

These are great for baking.

These are my favorite (below). Gala apples are the sweetest apples. Nature's candy growing on trees.

Now, off to bake a pie!!

Happy Harvest!
