Our apple picking adventure for The Food Project got off to a bit of a rocky start, or perhaps muddy is a better word (refer to picture below). Once I realized that my roommate's car had 4 wheel drive, we were golden. Yes, I'm not too proud to admit it. Perils of several years of riding a bike.
Look what you missed by staying inside on this rainy morning!
Once we got unstuck from the mud, we had a grand time picking apples...with some intermittent drizzle, but it didn't cramp our style.
We ended up picking 400 lbs of apples for The Food Project to sell, which helps them support their wonderful youth empowerment programs through farming and leadership development.
We even got to stay and pick up any apples that had fallen on the ground to take home. Two weekends of canning later, Franciel and I have finally emptied our apple stores.
