Autumn is For Apple Picking

2013 September 19

It’s Apple Picking Time


Autumn Apples

I love this time of year, don’t you? The air is getting cool and crisp, which is a welcome relief after the heat of summer.

This time of year always makes me think about apple picking in Ohio when I was a little girl.

Mom and Dad would take my brother and I to the apple orchard. We would have so much fun seeing who could pick the most apples.

Apple Picking Early 1960s


We would fill up a big basket full of delicious fresh apples. When we were done for the day, we would use some of the apples to make apple cider. If I remember correctly, we made it right at the apple farm. The rest of the apples would be used to make baked apples, applesauce, and apple pie. Of course, we would also eat them just as they were. Well, mom did cut them up for us when we were little.

To keep in the spirit of things I would like to share a coloring page of 2 kids carrying a basket full of apples.

If you are a homeschooling family, or teacher this coloring page would make a nice addition to your seasons curriculum.
