A few weeks ago we went apple picking in Julian, something that we haven’t done since fall of 2012. It was Aiden’s first time and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We went to Volcan Valley Apple Farmsince they had the most variety of apples. At the time, three kinds were available to pick–Jonathan, Empire, and Golden Delicious.
All the apple trees are dwarf and even Aiden who’s barely over two feet could reach them. We got there when the orchard opened and roamed around for over an hour. For very little work, we got a lot of delicious apples for baking and juicing. Don’t be surprised if you see a few apple desserts coming to the blog.
We had a lot of fun and will definitely make it a yearly tradition.
