Apple Picking Help

Merlin and Jasper thought it would be helpful to keep making room in the basket for more apples. So they ate their fill while I used my shep crook to pull down hundreds of the red fruit. It feels so decadent, going outside to your hill with a bushel basket and a hooked stick and coming back inside rich. And to spend a sunny afternoon with them, under that too-blue sky of late September... Luck is all around, getting thicker with the years.
