After the hecticness of the last few weeks, a weekend in the Berkshires with old friends was a much-needed break. The highlight of the trip was apple picking at Hilltop Orchards!
We spent a good long while wandering the orchard and tasting all the different varieties before carefully each picking a few perfect apples to go in our little bag. And the next morning, we had apples in our sourdough pancakes! I took home a few and have been eating a freshly-chopped apple in my oats every morning.
I’m so happy it is fall. I listen to Hem’s Half Acre all the time this season; it just sounds autumnal to me.
