Even though the weather is still warm, we wanted to continue the tradition of picking apples in the fall. We headed down to Clearview Organic Orchards in Watsonville, California. I think everyone had the same idea we did, because it was pretty crowded. Luckily the orchards are on a hill, so they didn’t feel that busy. Once we weighed and paid for our apples we enjoyed a delicious apple turnover at the barn.

Have you gone to pick apples before? Do you have any great apple recipes to share?

  1. So fun! I love your photos — the kids look great. I am sure they had a lot of fun. I’ve never gone to an orchard to pick for fun. We have apple trees (5) so it is more of a chore — but I do love the fresh apples!

  2. Your son is adorable. These orchards look beautiful and that apple turnover looks delicious. What a fun family day out.

  3. Your photos are absolutely stunning. I love that you can tell an entire story with your photos. I’m a writer at heart but there it would be incredibly difficult to capture in words what you are able to with your photos.

  4. I’ve never been apple picking and I live in Washington state! I’d love to go one day! Beautiful photos too, looks like a fun outing!

  5. Soren looks like a little paper boy with that hat and blue tote bag!

    That dress still looks amazing on you.

    What kind of apples did you end up picking? I wonder if there were any Honey Crisps at that orchard.

  6. I love your dress. I’m all about white and navy stripes, and just about all the time.
    We used to have really great apple orchards nearby, and they were destroyed in a wildfire. But I love apples this time of year and all the yummy things you can make with them.
    In fact, don’t tell anyone – but I kind of prefer apple to pumpkin in terms of my favorite seasonal flavor.

  7. Beautiful photos. This makes me want to go home so bad and see my family (we have an orchard in the garden) May I also say, you are such a beautiful Mum! If I look half as good as you when I’ve had two munchkins, I will be super happy!

  8. The last time I went apple picking was in high school when my family lived in Washington state – a very big apple state. That was more than 25 years ago! I don’t think apples when I think Watsonville for some reason – I had no idea that they had trees there! I will have to check that out!

  9. Great photos! I have yet to go apple picking. Whenever we plan to go, the season didn’t do well so you can actually pick the apples off the trees…and what fun would that be? The apples look like they will be a delicious treat!

  10. What a beautiful way to spend a day. I belong to an organic box service and went to a tomato festival at their location recently–tons of fun. 🙂

  11. My girls are so excited about going apple picking in a few weeks. We’re waiting to go with friends from Australia and will combine it with a pumpkin patch visit and a little wine tasting in Napa 🙂

    By the way, I love your dress! I’m a sucker for navy and white stripes. Is it from Sonnet James?

  12. Beautiful photos! Your sons are so adorable! Apples are one of my favorite things to bake with in the fall, I just put them in my latest cake!

  13. Looks like so much fun, it has been a long time since I picked apples. I can remembering doing it as a kid with my grandma! Makes me want some homemade applesauce!
