Apple Picking Pictures

Here, finally, are the pictures of our apple-picking adventure. As it turns out, the actual picking of the apples is not a lengthly process. We had a 1/2 bushel (about 20lbs) within about 20 minutes. We also picked raspberries though, and that was a more time consuming process. It was fun though, and there was a little petting zoo and pumpkin patch as well. They had this neat thing where the goats could walk up onto a thin bridge, and visitors could haul a cup of food up to them via a pulley system. There are a few pictures of this below. We ended up with 3 apple pies, and three apple crisps, which used only about half of our apples! I made another apple crisp last night to take to a friend's house. It was tasty! I think we'll make yet another crisp to freeze, and maybe some platz as well, and that should just about take care of the apples. They are such yummy, juicy apples too!

Mmm! How well do you think those things travel by post? Just wondering, thinking out loud here, folks. It looks like you had great weather for it, too. How warm is it?

Sarah, you should just come on over to Ontario for some pie. I like making pie, and every once in a while Phil will randomly talk about you and how he likes you, so I'm pretty sure he'd be okay if you visited. And then T&D could come on up for a visit and then....
Could life get any better?

Ooh! I'm in Biss! Good idea :-). We're in. My first holiday is the first week in November. So, Sarah, are you available for a Boston/Ottawa trip in November?

LoL

I never asked D if you could "bake a cherry pie" but boy can you ever bake an apple pie! Those look scrumptious! What a lucky man! (P.S., my name is Puzzle because it is always such a puzzle to know what to call me :)
