Aidan and I went Apple picking today at Barthel's Fruit Farm. I knew it was warm and not quite the crisp apple-picking weather but I wanted to do something fun with Aidan and once I mentioned it to him, he couldn't keep still he was so excited.
The only available apples were Gingergold and Paula Reds. We started with the Gingergolds and never made it to the Paula Reds. The mosquitoes were out in full force today and I picked my bag of apples in record time and had Aidan run back to the car. He didn't mind - he thought we were racing. I think two or three mosquitoes picked some apples for me, too, with some help from the wasps.
We'll be back for the Honeycrisps and I'm sure one more time later in the season, too. Hopefully, the mosquitoes will be elsewhere.
