The Perfect Imperfect

This weekend we took the girls apple picking at Old Frog Pond Farm in Harvard, MA. The girls were confuses by the splotches and bumps on the apples. We explained that the apples were organic and, as a result, the imperfections actually make the apples more perfect than the ‘beautiful’ apples available at grocery stores and traditional orchards. The pie we made didn’t look ‘beautiful’ either but, like the apples, it tasted perfect.
