I’m so sad that apple picking season is pretty much over but that isn’t stopping me from sharing these sweet photos from our apple picking adventures. I’m also baking all the pies, crisps and muffins. Heading out to as many apple picking events as I can possibly fine like the Portland Nursery Apple Tasting that is this weekend and next.
If you can’t tell I’m all about the apple. Apple spice, apple cider, apple pie… give me all the apple.
Our apple picking this year was a bit last minute, as in we decided at 3pm on a Sunday evening that we just needed to go apple picking so with a bit of help from Google we found a spot. Thirty minutes later we arrived at Albeke Farms where we had the entire apple orchard to ourselves.
The orchard was small but nice and perfect for our needs. Apple selection was limited to Macintosh but we didn’t mind especially since the kids and I made a trip out to Sherwood Orchards which had more varieties of apples than I knew what to do with.
So apple season is almost over for us and after this weekend we will be making our annual pumpkin patch trip and of course the carving of the pumpkins which we will hopefully be doing before Halloween night.
Does your family go apple picking? What is your favorite variety? How about a favorite recipe!
