We Need to Go Pick Apples....true story

9.10.2015


Me: Dear, we need to go to an apple orchard and pick some apples.

Him:  Do what??

Me: We need to go to an apple orchard and pick apples.

Him: Why? Can't you just buy some in the store?

Me: No, I want some fresh apples that haven't been waxed and polished and I would like some leaves attached to them.

Him: Why?

Me: I need them for a fall photo shoot that is coming up.

Him: Oh, of course you do. How about this weekend?

Me: That's Labor Day weekend, but that's fine with me.

And that is exactly how it went down. Yep, store bought apples were not what I wanted.

I sure am glad he understands what I need to do for my blog. We drove to Ellijay, Georgia to the R & A Apple Orchards which is a family run business. To pick apples you ride in a wagon behind a large tractor and get a history lesson at the same time. It was a little warmer than we would have liked, but I needed the apples and it's just what you do.

Wouldn't one of these make a cool coffee table?

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see how I used those fresh picked apples that we sweated for.



Today is the last day to enter my GIVEAWAY. Don't miss out!

  4. Kim, It's so hilarious the way our hubbies become part of the blog action, behind the scenes! Mine thinks he only eats home cooked if I'm making something for the blog and there is indeed some truth to this! :) Looking forward to seeing more of your apples soon! Linda

  25. The only way to eat an apple is fresh picked....photos always look so inspiring with the branches and leaves even on the Lemoms when we were on the Santa Barbara shoot with Fifi O'Neill the lemons were the size of gape fruits not kidding, and the Apples there love the salted air.

    Can't wait to see your beautiful shoot.
    I have been lacking in visits to you, I have been working on a new French Piece for my small sitting room, and just posted yesterday so now I can relax and catch up on all that I have missed.

    See you soon.
    The apple a day keeps not only the doctor away but you inspired for your shoot! :)

  26. Nothing like fresh picked!
    I hope you crunch into them and enjoy them after.
    Our old house had an apple vine and they were the tastiest apples I've ever eaten!

  27. Mr. Savvy is a good man! I haven't been to an apple orchard in years!

  28. Living in your neck of the woods, we go up to Ellijay every fall to buy apples. I am liking the idea of picking my own, but not sure hubby is going to be as agreeable as yours!

  29. I used to take the children to Ellijay to the apple orchards. Once I took Mom along with us...it's so far away now, I really miss it. Loved this!
