Apple Orchrd Visit
We drove to Eastern Washington, hoping to go apple-picking.
|We were going to go apple-picking in the Wenatchee area, but it was a couple weeks too late. So, we just went for a drive and checked out the (mildly cheesey) Washington Apple Commission.||This is the new way of growing apples--on heavy-duty stakes in the ground. This is a demonstration plot at the Washington Apple Commission.|
|We did pick a backpack full of apples, too, from an orchard that had been picked already. They must have been frozen a couple times, because the temperature had gone down to the 20's a few nights in a row, but they were still great.||This is one of the fans that's used in freezing weather to prevent cold air from killing the blossoms.|
