Sshhh… APPLES SLEEPING


Sshhh… APPLES SLEEPING
Originally uploaded by rpkrajewski.
We got out to Berlin (Massachusetts) bright and early, before the rain, to go apple picking. The pickin's were pretty easy, since we've had such bad weather on the weekends lately. Berlin Orchards is for sale, so we hope that some enterprising soul or collective will keep this place going.

Oh man.

I never got a chance to explore the Mass orchards this season, but I am heading down to my favorite in Connecticut, Lyman Orchards, tomorrow for the last time.

*sigh* They can't take away apple season so soon!!

Get going, man !
The apples at Berlin were really BIG this year. I don't know if it's because people haven't been making it out, or if the weekend weather has been unfavorable, but we were trying to find smaller apples for the kids and it was kind of a challenge.

Hmm. Maybe I'll try to go there first, or on the way, or something.

I eat about six apples a day, so you can only imagine how quickly I go through bags from the orchard.

I worry that it will just go to developers and they will build condos. From what I was told our wonderful government taxes the small farmer to death and makes it near impossible to keep running. That's why a lot of New England Orchards are closing.

It would be a doggone shame
As we were driving on the winding ways of route 62, I was thinking to myself, “You know, self, there just aren't enough mega-mansions around there.”
