Sunday afternoon was perfect for a walk down
through the apple orchards.
Hundreds of bins waiting to be filled.
An old wooden ladder to reach the
highest apples in the trees.
That's my hubby walking through a field that
once grew oats when he was a kid.
Now there are hundreds of apple trees.
An apple picking container.
This is an old photo of my father-in-law
picking apples in the original orchard.
This was probably taken in the 1930's
or 1940's when he was a young man.
Note that they used baskets to
collect the apples in and then they were
put into wooden barrels.
I love this photo. I don't know who
took it but they had a good 'eye'.
looking up to the top of the hill
It's a long walk from the bottom to the top.
This is only the half way mark.
When we got to the top we picked a large
bag of Cortland apples.
It was so great to get out and enjoy the
beauty of the apple farm and nature.
Did you get out and enjoy the first
weekend of fall?
What did you do?
I hope you have a wonderful week!
