Apples, apples, apples.
Red, green, yellow.
Sweet, tart, crisp.
Pies, tarts, bliss.
Apple picking season has finally arrived! Every week new types of apples will be up for grabs, literally, at the orchard. It’s a glorious time.
We took the girls out bright and early in the morning to pick gala apples. Due to the time of our arrival, the place was not packed. We were able to safely distance and pick delicious apples- all while maintaining some normalcy given our current Covid-coaster lives.
Our timing also granted additional perks! Who knew?! We were privileged enough to be asked to feed the small farm animals. It was such a special experience for the girls who have been denied multiple other trip requests this summer due to safety concerns. They enjoyed every bit of animal engagement.
It was so nice to feed and interact with so many farm friends. Each animal contributes so much to the farm. The girls learned that it’s not an easy job and requires much love and patience.
Both apples and animals are a treat if you treat them well. What goes around comes around. It’s amazing how many lessons are tucked away in our everyday experiences. Spread light so you may receive light. Enough darkness already exists.
And, don’t forget to enjoy your apples! I hear they keep the doctor away.
