Fall in New England– the most glorious time of year. Here in southern New Hampshire, we’re enjoying warm days, cool nights, and starting to see some color in the trees.
One of my favorite fall activities is picking apples. Another is eating apple crisp and apple pie.
We have a lot orchards in this part of state. You can buy apples ready-picked, or grab a bag and pick your own.
It’s time to bring back Busker, everyone’s favorite street musician. Today he gives his saxophone a rest, and goes in search of apples. Naturally, there are complications…
Most area orchards have a shop where you can buy refreshments and local crafts. Some have play areas and farm animals for kids. And some are “event centers,” with outdoor wedding sites and reception halls.
My favorite orchard? Norway Hill in nearby Hancock, NH. They have fresh air, a great view, and a little farm stand where you can buy… apples.
Have you ever gone apple picking? Ever fallen out of a tree while you were at it??
Do you think apples taste better if you have to work for them?
Do you have any fall rituals you’d care to share? Besides eating candy corn, I mean.
Hope you’ll leave a comment.
