2013 Project 365

Project 365/281 – Picking Apples

A wonderful way to spend the afternoon with friends and little ones. The fields of Pick Your Own at Larriland Farms are expansive and varied. With a wide variety of apples that are ready for picking encourages yummy things like Apple Pie.

Apple Pie a la mode you are calling my name. Off to bake!


My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. ‘Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you’re stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem – just move on to the next. ‘Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.’

  1. Those apples look really scrumptious, Emily. Sounds like you had a great time picking them.
    Thanks so much for the beautiful print. It was waiting for me when I got back home yesterday. xx 🙂

  2. Having grown up surrounded by apple orchards when I was a kid, I love fresh picked apples, especially on a warm fall day. However, I have no desire to stand on a ladder for hours with a heavy sack of apples slung over my shoulder again. 😉

    • Is there anything you haven’t done? You’d like these trees. They are all trimmed low, and many times I had to bend over to pick the apples. It takes just minutes to get a bag full. Not like blueberries!

  3. Did someone say apple pie?!?!? 😀
    My grandfather had an acre at an orchard. It had a Frankinapple tree…. it was grafted with 5 different varieties of apple. To funny to see.

  4. They look good enough to eat. We’ve been picking apples from our garden trees and blackberries from the field behind our house, so I’ve already made a couple of apple and blackberry crumbles: delicious! Happy baking! 🙂
