Apple Picking State Of Mind October 19, 2012October 19, 2012 AndrewBui Apple pick in the pastoral settings of Upstate New York at Masker Orchards. AB: Tis the season to…Apple Pick! And boy does it get crowded up state. I thought I was in some gentrified neighborhood in Brooklyn! But a Rockland County we will go and make sure to come prepared. You’ll be hoofing up hills and through orchard lanes littered with apples fell from the vine. Sensible shoes will do a sartorial man, good. Once you get your apples for the season, my apple of choice was the Ida apple, a sour apple with sufficient tart sweetness and crisp bite, know that fiber does a winter wardrobe good. Ida, a lovely name for a lovely apple. Andrew on the farm: Take a breath from hoofing it up the mountain and through the lanes. What I'm wearing: Paul Smith Cardigan, John Varvatos T-shirt, Theory pants, Uniqlo socks, Birkenstocks, Vintage fringed scarf.
