No Apples? No Problem in New York!
However, it wasn’t enough to satisfy our apple-craving kids, so we walked through the orchards in search of trees that still had any apples. That made for a lovely walk, some pleasant exercise, beautiful scenery, and eventually, the discovery we’d been hoping for. A single apple missed up in a tree caught our eye, and it became our goal. With a very tall father hoisting his tall daughter onto his shoulders, that apple became our “Golden Delicious” conquest. We each took a bite and passed it around to savor. As we continued walking, all the way to the very back of the orchard, up on a hill, we discovered a bunch of trees that still had apples on them as well! Had they been missed? Passed over? Were they worm-filled? We didn’t know the answer, and didn’t want to know–we just picked a few to enjoy.
