Andrew's class took a field trip to Arrowhead Apple Orchard. We got the full tour from growing to picking to packaging. They taught us all how to properly pick an apple from a tree. You twist upwards towards the sky. Pulling downward causes bruising. I think Andrew's favorite part was the "woolly bear" caterpillars that flock to the orchard by the thousands.
When we got home he checked all the apples in our fridge for bruising. He says we have red delicious, yellow delicious and green delicious.
