Helpers in the Orchard

Saturday was our first Farmer's Market of the season. It went really well!! The evening prior, Friday night, we had my family over for a 'Pickin' & Sorting' Party.

We had one more tree that needed picked and then everything needed sorted, polished and bagged or 'busheled'!

Those pictures are timeless. The quality of the light, the setting... That could be a snapshot form the 50's! (Not that I was around back then &;)

These are wonderful pictures! I'd want to enlarge and frame a couple of them for my kitchen.

Oh, looks like a great evening in the orchard.

Hi Allison,

Wonderful family photos! Your niece and nephew are adorable :-) I haven't been apple picking in a very long time. Your post brought a smile to my face.
