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.
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!
