Apple Picking

Once again this fall we returned to Gate’s U-Pick to pick apples. It was a bit later in the season this year, and the apples were a bit earlier, so this year we picked Cortland apples. Oh, and pears. I had my hands rather too full of apples to take any good photographs so the one above will simply serve as “proof” that we went. Anybody who has picked apples will tell you that it is very easy to pick way more than you need in less than an hour, so we have quite the store of fruit! We ended up with around 45 lb of apples and 40 lb of pears for $20.  Yesterday I made some apple sauce to freeze but I will have to come up with some other ideas to get through all the fruit. Or change the saying to “Five apples a day….”
