IN THE FIELD: Apple Pickin’ Time

September 12, 2012 29 comments

Where I live, we are fortunate to experience the four seasons. There are a few weeks of summer remaining before we move in to the Autumn season. Trees are starting to change colors, days and night are cooler, and the fall harvest is about to begin.

Our local orchard is giving hints to the changing of season. They have begun to post the “pick your own” signs for apples. Folks come from far and wide to head out into the rows and rows of trees to fill up their baskets with fresh fruit. On weekends, the orchard provides hay rides out to the apple trees, samples of home made baked goods, and all sorts of games for the children to play. They even build a castle out of hay bales for the kids to climb on and explore.

While it’s hard for me to pick a favorite season, Autumn is in the top four.
