Masker Orchard – Warwick, New York

On Sunday, I rented a car with my remaining Hertz points and drove upstate to pick pumpkins and apples. We were a little late for apple picking season, but had a lot of fun at the orchard. David and I looked for a good twenty minutes before we found our first apples – there were a lot of apples on the ground, but barely any on the trees. Apparently, we were two weeks too late for the good apples and ended up eating a LOT of red delicious apples. Masker’s has this weird rule – you can eat AS MANY APPLES AS YOU WANT while you’re on their orchard, but if you want to take any apples home, you have to pay $20 for a bag (the bag can fit about 20 pounds of apples). They even checked our trunks to make sure we weren’t hiding any apples on our way out – isn’t that crazy?

We found apple picking to be really tiring so we decided to make up games and take pictures of us jumping around:

There was also a small general store, a pumpkin patch (it was very small), and a refreshment stand. We picked up some apple cider doughnuts at the stand:

And took some awesome pictures:

We also made this game up where we used the apple picker as a catapult – we loaded the catapult with an apple and aimed it at another person across the field. That person had a plastic bag in their hands and tried to catch the apple in the bag (it was a lot of fun, but I ended up getting hit in the knee and the thigh by an apple). David was really good at aiming the apple and Sara ended up catching two of the apples he threw:

Here’s a video of the game:

After our orchard visit, we headed to a pumpkin patch to pick some pumpkins – stay tuned!
