Apple Picking 2015
This past weekend my mom came into town and we were wanting to do something fun while she was here. I follow an u-pick apple farm on Facebook and the past several weeks they have been posting that the apple are ready for picking. This is crazy as its still summer and hot outside, but was great timing for us to go apple picking. The farm is about 1.5 hours outside of Seattle, so we headed up on Sunday after Mark and I went on our 10 mile training run.
The place was a bit more rural than I was imagining, but they had tons of varieties of apple many of which were ready to pick. We had fun walking up and down the rows with our little map and picking apples and pears from the trees, taste testing to see if they were ripe, tart or sweet. We came away with about 10 pounds which will get us through the next month or so of delicious apple desserts and apples to add to our lunches. Here are a few pictures from the day.
