Apple picking

Whenever we are back in Germany, my boys fondly reminisce about apple picking.  We have eagerly awaited the start of apple season, and it's finally here!

Lavella thought that picking the apple up off of the ground was an acceptable form of harvest, so we had to monitor what made it into our (re-usable cloth) bags.

Andrew and Elijah each picked a good bunch of mostly sound apples.

As you can see, there was some tasting and putting back that happened.

Isaiah didn't pick his share of apples, and I think that Hannah's going to have to talk to him about his work ethic.

Andrew was pulling this wagon with two bags full of apples, and it looked like he was having a hard time with it.  I asked if he needed help, and with a strained voice (leaning diagonally forward to pull), he said "No, I think it might be a little too heavy for your back."

Andrew, trying to keep Lavella from picking crab-apples.

Lavella was very tired by the end of our trip, but all together it was a fairly productive day.

We are going apple picking with the MOMS group this year and I can't wait. Usually we just pick them off our own tree but we didn't take of them this summer so our apples are all buggy. I still have 2 gallon bags of pealed and sliced apples from last year left in my freezer. Our favorite thing to make is apple bread. Enjoy them!
