It was a beautiful, crisp fall day, and Kate couldn't wait to get started:
But then we passed these wheelbarrows, and she promptly hopped aboard.
I don't think she budged from this spot the rest of the afternoon:
We did coax her out to pick a few apples from the bins lining the orchard.
I think we were a little late in the season, and most of the apples had been picked and binned, though there were still quite a few on trees if you went deeper into the orchard.
Will deliberated carefully over each apple he chose:
Kate picked more dandelions than apples:
But she had fun, so who cares?
After the picking, we headed over to get some fresh, hot apple fritters:
And we watched them press apples into fresh cider.
Here they're crushing the apples into pulp:
Three weeks later and we're still up to our ears in apples, but I think the last of them will be made into applesauce in the next day or two...
