The weather this weekend demanded a trip to Stribling Orchard in Markham, VA. I even found some Macintosh apples (10 pounds!).
This apple picker came in handy. Though, it seemed to bruise the apples. Marcus devised a clever strategy: leave one apple in the bottom of the wire basket to protect the rest.
Stribling has picnic tables, a country store, and donkeys. There were goats too, but they hid in the barn all day.
The orchard is only about 60 minutes from DC. Now I have to figure out what to make with all my delicious apples!
