I had the pleasure of going home to Vermont last weekend to partake in almost all of my favorite fall activities. I say almost because we didn’t make it to a corn maze – between picking up my mom’s farm share, visiting family, apple picking, and baking there just wasn’t enough time. There’s still time, however, to get to one in the Boston area (hint to all my Boston friends!) before the season is over.
Although the weather wasn’t great for apple picking (overcast and starting to sprinkle), it was still beautiful. We hiked to the top of the orchard for our favorite Honey Crisps, filled the rest of the bag up with Macs, and rewarded ourselves with warm cider donuts. There are many apple recipes to come, but for now, enjoy these pictures of beautiful Vermont in the fall.
From left to right, starting at the top: 1) kale share at Piccadilly Farm, 2) picking husk cherries, 3) apple harvesting at Green Mountain Orchard, 4) New England scenery, 5) Macintosh apple tree, 6) pick your own pumpkins, 7) Rosie’s first cider donut of the season, 8) delicious cider donuts that didn’t last long!
