Seasonal Picking

In late summer, early fall, we go in search of our roots, so to speak. We take our children to the apple orchards to pick apples. This year, we decided to take them to pick raspberries for the first time, too. It’s always a fun adventure and we always learn something.

We learned how to pick raspberries without touching thorns. We learned how to coexist with bees. We gained a much bigger respect for where our food comes from and how it gets to our plate.

My little ones really loved the experience! They were so proud of their pickings.

We ended up with a giant bag of these beautiful Spartan apples.

And as an added reward, we found a beautiful nest among the Gala apples.

  1. Wow! I just love your stunning pictures. We go picking every year up here too. It is amazing to watch the little ones learn to gently pick their own fruit.

      Ah! Thank you! Yes, it is amazing to watch. They were so quiet and absorbed, which doesn’t happen often. LOL

      The raspberries were delicious. It was fun for us. I didn’t think it was going to go over well because of the thorns and the bees but, they did surprisingly well!
      I have an apple pie recipe to post soon. :)~
