Last weekend I navigated my way to a nearby orchard to pick apples. I couldn't believe how many other folks were at the orchard-- an entire field of parked cars! However, most folks were just picking a few apples-- or maybe just buying doughnuts :).
The trees were loaded with giant apples, and picking was heaps of fun. The sad thing was it only took me about 5 or 10 minutes to pick all four of my bags full!
I brought my apples home and made some apple sauce (Golden Delicious), which I have been enjoying. Great apples are a definite perk of living in one of the top-ten apple-producing states (Pennsylvania and Michigan are both part of that list).
