Apple Picking

Stickball

We went Apple Pick­ing upstate, in War­wick, NY. Jason and I dis­cov­ered some­thing more chal­leng­ing than chuck­ing apples at each oth­er – spear­ing them with a stick, and then attempt­ing to fling them at each oth­er. The one pic­tured above is bounc­ing vio­lent­ly towards me.

It’s been 3 years since we last went apple pick­ing.

Apple Picking

From Flickr: Guess what Presley found? No really, there weren't many apples to pick.Last sum­mer, after we were forced out of our beloved Mass Ave apart­ment, due to neg­li­gent fire, we were for­tu­nate to be tak­en in by some tru­ly great peo­ple. And these peo­ple invit­ed us to go apple pick­ing last year, some­thing I hadn’t done since I was a kid. It was the kind of thing you don’t do enough, liv­ing in the city.

This year, the crew con­sist­ed of Jason & Liz, Bryan & Jill, and Pres­ley & I. We head­ed fur­ther up the North Shore this year, to Ipswich, MA. Seemed like a love­ly town, though we spent all of our time on the farm.

How great is it that they make you take a hay ride before you can pick apples?
