After the apple festive we still wanted more.
On to the lovely orchards of Hood River, OR: part Columbia River Gorge, part Mt Hood. Oh yes.
But why go to an orchard for apples if you're not going to pick them yourself?
So we did. And I must say, picking apples is ridiculously easy. [Thanks apple sorting friends!]
Now, there were some really cute small apples that I considered using for fall arrangements. But uhh... someone ate those, too. Someone really can't resist apple crisp and apple pie. Oops. (They were delish.)
