Apple Picking: an expose

As we are prepare to do a little light apple-picking tomorrow, I came across this gem of a piece, from Slate, guaranteed to make you feel like total shit about your family-friendly weekend recreation.

What particularly got me was the revelation that the trees we pick from are dwarf trees, stunted little mutant freakazoid trees that regular apple trees would laugh at. Thanks Daniel Gross, for tearing the veil off my eyes and ruining my freaking apple-picking outing. At least the children haven't found out the AWFUL truth about apple picking. Think I'll keep it that way.

Happy trails!
