"Hey farmer, farmer put away the DDT. I don’t care about spots on my apples, leave me the birds and the bees." – Big Yellow Taxi
We spent a sunny and beautiful Sunday out in the apple orchards of Watsonville, Ca. The organic Clearview Orchards were hustling and bustling with both apple pickers and busy bees pollinating. While I have been berry picking several times, this was my first time going apple picking. It was on my autumn bucket list and I’m excited to mark it as complete. We came home with a big basket full of super sweet organic and imperfect apples. If you aren’t familiar with the imperfect food movement, many are embracing fresh fruits and vegetables in their more natural state. Some of my apples were shaped kinda wonky and others had scars and spots, but they are still just as delicious. No pesticides and GMOs are used on these fresh little beauties making them environmentally friendly.
Next on the list is eating all the apples! I am researching some fun apple recipes to start cooking them up. Check out my Pinterest board full of apple ideas!
