Julian Apple-picking


Recently, we went apple picking up in Julian. While there are a few different apple farms up there, we selected a tiny organic farm. Trees planted, not in neat, orchard-like rows. Instead, these trees looked as if they'd sprouted up on their own, almost as if the result of someone tossing a core here and there. It really was fantastic to take a walk along the property, picking from the different types of apples they had to choose from. The kids ran along the path with their bags, excitedly plucking any apple they got close enough to. Afterwards, we got to make a little apple cider to taste.
This was our first year, and we've decided that Fall Apple Picking is already a family tradition! Never mind the fact that the fridge bin is stuffed with more apples than I can shake a stick at!

I love Julian and this was always a tradition for us, when I was a kid, and then with my kids!
Cool about the organic trees :)
Did you get some apple pie there?

lol - I'm embarrassed to admit that we did in fact pick up a pie, but I felt silly bringing home tons of apples AND a pie! lol.

The smell from the apples must be divine. I'm going to have to copy your new tradition and get up there!
