We went apple picking this weekend.....I am now up to my eyeballs in apples and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
|A good motto to live by.....|
We leased an organic apple tree from Liberty View farm. It cost about $70 but everything on the tree was ours! We got about 75 pounds of sweet, juicy, organic apples from our tree. That's a little less than a dollar a pound for apples! Farmer Billiam is just a sweet, wonderful person, I am really glad we found this farm. We are definitely leasing a tree again next year! If you are interested in leasing a tree just follow the link above. 2012 is not up on the site just yet but I am sure it will be as soon as their busy season is over!
|I can reach this one.....|
|We call her "Two Bites" Little Bug! Such an apple waster!!|
I already put up about 11 cans of applesauce and made an large pan of apple crisp and I still have two bags of apples left! I am thinking about making some apple pie filling and apple butter as well!!
|We filled up three of these bags!!|
Little Bird is crazy about bees too! Liberty View has bee hives, along with goats, pigs and chickens, so they were hanging out by us the whole time we picked. She was very excited that this little honey bee, along with many others, landed on her apple! She has such a great respect for bees because she knows that we wouldn't have food if it wasn't for these little guys! (No bee nor child was harmed during this picture or while picking!)

Yes my children dress up to go to the farm. We had a lot of fun picking and talking with everyone! We don't get to see each other that much so it is extra fun when we do get together. My niece and nephews were just so cute!!
|M, eating apples when your front teeth are missing is kind of hard!!|
|K loved eating apples!!|

|I can do it all by myself...|
