One of our favourite seasonal markers is our annual trip to a local orchard to pick apples. It looks like it’s been a great growing season, and when we visited last weekend, the boughs were heavy with ripe Lobos, Paula Reds and MacIntosh apples.

As usual, we picked more than we could ever eat. Beloved has pie crust dough chilling in the fridge to make delicious use of the extras!

Though apple-picking is definitely an autumnal activity and I feel like summer has not yet released us from her sweaty embrace, we were all shocked to consider that in just a few more weeks we’ll be picking pumpkins, and picking a Christmas tree just another few weeks after that.

Time keep flying by quicker and quicker, doesn’t it?

Which orchard did you visit last weekend? Maybe we will try and get out tomorrow if the weather cooperates…

This is the Log Cabin Orchard in Greely. It’s a favourite because it’s close and not too well known so often not as busy as others. We also like Kilmarnock, Mountain and Cannamore orchards. Happy picking!
