Apple picking adventures

Today after church, 3 ladies and I set forth on a grand adventure to find an apple orchard. We headed east for about an hour to Thierbach Orchard just west of St. Louis. It was a gorgeous day: bright, sunny skies and the perfect temperature.

The trees were picked over with all the remaining apples being mostly on the high branches. After sampling one...we picked mostly Mutsu apples. My goodness! It was one of the most delicious apples I've ever eaten! It was so juicy, our hands and faces were just as sticky as any of those belonging to the children running around in the orchard...

Safety first! One person to spot, one to hold the ladder, and one to grab the apples from the picker :)

Fall is upon us! You can see the yellow and orange creeping into the scenery.

The beautiful day spent with friends was just what we needed!

Peace and love, y'all
