The Apples: Photo Essay

The difference between where we live and where other people is that other people pay to go on farms to pick apples. For the experience (not socking it, by the way: we did that too, remember?)

So other people go to farms and pay to pick apples. And we live in Apple Territory, where we can get paid to pick apples.

And! We have a local Apple Festival. It’s a fundraiser for school stuff, I believe, and people from the community get together and pick apples – truck beds full of them! – to make and sell apple cider. It’s a lot of fun. The whole entire thing is a lot of fun – picking the apples on other people’s farms (we brought a tote of our own apples to the apple press on the day of the festival), and enjoying the festival itself.

Here are some photos!
