A Bushel and a Peck

It's apple-picking time! Oh, how I loooooove picking apples!! This weekend my mom and I will take our annual trip to Legend Hills Orchard in Utica. This year is really special, because it is the first time we are taking my niece, Palmer, who is 2. We've taken my other nieces and nephew from the time they were her age. It's a really great day.

After picking, we always go to Ye Olde Mill for lunch and ice cream. Ye Olde Mill is the home of Velvet Ice Cream, which is really good. You've had it if you've ever eaten a dessert with ice cream at Bob Evans restaurants.

The best part of the day is the smell of the car on the way home. Yummy!!!

And for those of you who are curious, a peck is equal to 8 quarts or 16 pints. 4 pecks equal 1 bushel. And that is your lesson for the day.

Happy Apple Picking!!!
