Picking Apples and Prunes
While visiting my aunt last week, we drove to her friend’s house to pick apples and prunes in her orchard.
Since my husband and oldest son were on a 50-mile canoe trip with the Scouts, it was me with my younger three boys plus my aunt.
We used a ladder for the fruit higher up in the tree. Boy did we miss the longer arms and height of my husband and oldest teenager!
The box in the photo above shows some of the apples we picked.
My little boys had a lot of fun.

After we picked apples and prunes…
We ate some and canned a majority of our harvest. We made jam and relish.
Have you ever picked apples or prunes or another fruit from an orchard? Do you have fruit trees?
