Summer is dwindling away here, and I am sad to see it go. I must admit that I am hoping for two very conflicting things: just a little bit more summer, and the chill that will bring the mosquitos at our house to a standstill.
Anyways, we went apple picking for the first time this year, and it was very educational:
Apparently stink bugs thrive on apples.
Not all grown-ups can ignore said stink bugs.
Said grown-ups make Mama happy she grew up in the woods. With boys.
Apples can and do split right open on the tree, by the dozens.
My boys enjoy picking fruit that isn't growing on the ground (they both picked and picked and picked).
And, most importantly, we learned that someday, when we own our own place, we want fruit trees. Especially a sprawling apple tree for climbing.
