Follow Us Around: Apple Picking

Apple picking

It’s is officially fall!! Phew, now I don’t look so silly with all my fall and Halloween decorations up, or adding pumpkin spice to my oatmeal every morning, or burning fall candles…

Am I the only one who starts fall a few weeks early?? Once September hits, the summer is pretty much over and hello leaves/acorns/pumpkins galore. We even got our first apple cider doughnut before the first real day of fall and I was not the least bit mad.

Over the weekend Rose and I had a Skidmore in Boston get together with fellow graduates that live in the area. The event was to go apple picking at Drew Farm, so naturally we signed up right away and showed up early and eager to go a picking.

The apples were definitely ripe and ready to be picked, at least the mcintosh apples, which, let’s be honest, are the best. We had no trouble filling our bag to the brim. We also might have sampled an apple or two whilst picking.

Once we decided we couldn’t fit any more apples in our bag, we headed back to where the Skidmore group was located and got to enjoy some apple cider doughnuts and apple cider. It was just glorious. I haven’t had an apple cider doughnut or apple cider in a really long time… too long. I forgot what I was missing! Needless to say that probably won’t be my only doughnut of the season.

Now we have a huge bowl full of yummy apples that are begging to be made into a pie or tart or something sweet. And now that it is officially fall I can bake one without any shame or celebrating the changing season too early!

gourds

Look at all those gourds! We were so tempted to by some little pumpkins at the farm but decided we best wait so they don’t just sit and rot in our hot apartment.. soon though, soon my little pumpkins.

Happy fall everyone!
