The traditions of fall: Apple-picking

This year, I’m guessing that even though we picked more apples than ever before (see previous years here and here) we might actually eat all the apples we picked!

Apple picking!

(It’s funny to look back to the old post from 2005 and see a Simon who’s barely out of babyhood on our first apple-picking expedition. Blog really is an online baby book!)

I’m curious as to where you go apple picking in these parts. I’m a transplant and don’t know all the nooks and crannies still after all these years. 🙂

I grew up in New England and we went every year! Nothin’ like an apple directly from the tree. Dirt and all.

Hey Shauna,

Those pictures are from Cannamore Orchard. It’s south of town, down Hwy 31 / Bank St. We’ve also gone to Kilmarnock, near Merrickville. Kilmarnock is gorgeous, wins hands down for size and scenery, but Cannamore has fun activities for the kids like mazes and climbers. Friends of ours went to the one off Jockvale, near Stonebridge, last week and said it was nice too.

We were apple picking this weekend too! Only in our backgarden, but the children absolutely loved it. Make apple crumble too . . . yummy
