The Freshest apple

childhood unplugged


We have been slowly making our way through the National Trust 50 things to do before your 11 3/4 and are at about the half way mark. We don't really plan when we are going to tick something off this adventure inspired challenge so it's always really fun when something happens naturally like when we were at St Fagans a few weeks ago and walked through the small apple and pear orchard. Mr A loves apples and spotted some low hanging ones and before I knew it he had picked one and taken a big bite, which meant we can ticket off challenge No.9 - Eat an apple straight from a tree"

We grow what we can in our small vegetable patch at home and it's always wonderful to see the journey of where our food comes from first hand, even with something simple like picking an apple from a tree. We are hoping to tick of a few more challenges this autumn such as playing conkers and setting up a snail race. These slower quieter days are the ones we treasure the most and even though weather wise we didn't have a great summer we are looking toward Autumn, Halloween and dare I say it the festive season as a family of four unlike last year when there was just three of us.

  2. What a great experience for Mr A, there's nothing nicer than an apple that you've just picked yourself. I'm impressed how quickly you're working through the list of 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4, especially as you're not really trying to blast through it. Mr A looks like he's enjoying his time exploring the grounds of St Fagans with you as well. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.

  3. I LOVE that challenge - I must get cracking on it with my two. I want to start visiting more National Trust places this winter, I might have moaned about going to them when I was a kid but I loved them really ;)

    1. It's a really fun thing to do and if you start now you will have more than enough time to finish them before they are 11 3/4

  4. St Fagans is STILL on my list of places I haven't been with Tibbs yet. Is it worth waiting till Spring or should we come for some Autumn colour?

    1. Eleanor - they are working on upgrading St Fagans at the moment so the inside museum is not open at the moment and the are installing a little play area and a new restaurant which will be done by spring so would probably wait until then but saying that we enjoy it all year round :)
