Pick Your Own
The weather is cooling down and my sweaters are slowy starting to appear from the back of the closet. It's that time of year to head north and "pick your own ________". Last year Erik and I went apple picking at Barton Orchards in New York and had a fantastic time. We ran around that place all day picking apple, eating apples, and laughing ourselves silly with an apple high. I loved climbing the trees (though totally prohibited) and eating apples up on the highest branch. Very different from life in Jersey City/New York. And let me tell you, no other apple stands a chance against any New York variety. Those things are [golden] delicious!
I'm planning another trip, but I can't decided if I should go back to Barton in Dutchess county (we used to live there) or head someplace new. Does anything know of anything is Westchester or Putnam? It's got to be a farm with pick your own apples, and other fruit is a plus, too. Pumpkins don't really excite me, you kind of just pick them up instead of actually picking them off the tree. This place seems nice too, but I'm scared of driving all the way to a new place and having it suck.
