Wear the right shoes
What do shoes have to do with apple picking, you’re wondering? First, you want to make sure you protect your footwear properly for the damp fall conditions. And, according to Peter Hull of Apple Dave’s Orchards, “Apple trees are out in a field with tall, six inch grass. Warm, dry shoes make for happy picking!” He adds that dressing in layers is a good idea, too, because a day that starts out chilly may end up sunny and warm.
