apple-picking mayhem!

oh! dear me. hi.

not having grown up in the wonderful province of ontario, i never got to have the quintessential ontario-elementary-school-field-trip experience of picking apples in the fall. now that i have some time on my hands, i decided to grab the bull by the horns.

i think i picked about three before i got bored and started gossiping about boys. thereby unintentionally completing the elementary school field trip experience. here is a little photo diary:

i carefully orchestrated that picture. for posterity.

my first bite of an apple fresh off the tree.

for the record, that look says "holy shit, that's a good apple."

and the finished result. apple pie with a cheddar crust.
