Apple Picking in Mainz

Pin It Now!

One of the fun things about homeschool is being able to customize your curriculum to different themes. For September we are using the theme of apples for learning. I found a cute apple picking field in Mainz and we were able to make a field trip out of it with a local homeschool group last week.

There were several rows with 11 different varieties of apples to choose from.

The kids loved tugging the apples right from the tree. It was a great compliment to our apple theme for this month. I had plans of making apple crisp and apple pies all weekend, but our oven is kaput until this weekend. I did however make this Butternut Squash and Apple soup from Ina Garten and we all loved it.

 If you live within an hour or so of Mainz I'd recommend a visit to Appel Happel. You can visit their site HERE for directions, special events and contact info. This coming Saturday (September 22nd) they will be having a big apple festival which looks like loads of fun.

I'll be sharing some of my favorite apple themed activities we have been doing soon!

Willkommen Herbst! (Welcome Fall!)
