apple picking with sweetgreen.

see MORE

last week, we went apple picking up at maskers orchard with our sponsor, sweetgreen. their october salad features apples sourced locally which we are thrilled about because eleanor and samson are pretty much obsessed with apples these days.   the orchard was probably the most beautiful i’ve visited and the entire morning felt like the perfect way to usher in autumn as a family. we brought back a huge bag of apples and have big plans to finally put that juicer to work this week. wish us luck! special thanks to steven stauffer and the sweetgreen team for such a fun day.

ps. instagram your favorite fall photos with the hashtag #sgfall for a chance to win a limited edition ‘beets don’t kale my vibe’ tote.

    LOL! Very cute! I know it’s part of the “schtick” but I can’t imagine carrying a salad bowl, etc. on a picnic with my kiddos in real life. I can barely get MYSELF to the picnic much less the veggies and a chopping knife. I AM hungry for an apple now though!

  4. Bianca

    On a side note… Naomi, I just wanted to let you and your family know how happy I am that you’re supporting local, sustainable foods on your blog. I love ALL of your food posts, but your relationship with sweetgreen really makes me smile. Sustainability and getting back to our local roots is so important, and it’s wondering to see y’all promoting that on your blog. Thank you.

  65. Kristin

    I’m loving the skirt with boots .. Where is that skirt from? It’s lovely . Always the perfect outfits , don’t know how ya do it ! Lucky lady

  66. I’m so jealous of all the apple picking going on. I live nowhere near apples. Bummer.

  67. Natalia

    OMG! Is Naomi really pregnant? Normally, I wouldn’t ask that question (I think it’s kind of rude to ask), but can someone tell me where this information is coming from? There are multiple comments above that mention it, but no confirmation (which I wouldn’t expect Naomi to confirm over a comment). I’m just curious if there’s an actual announcement, or if the original commenter is just a troll.

  68. You have beautiful kids! And I really like this video. I wish we would have fruit picking activities where I live, unfortunatly for me it’s at leas a two hour drive before I can pick my own fruit over here in Belgium.

    Love, Saar

  69. Amanda H.

    Hey Naomi,

    Great video!!

    If you are looking for a fun craft project to do with all those apples, we shared how to make our Apple Stamped Jack-O-Lantern cards on our website. It’s very easy and since we use food coloring it makes for the perfect snack time project. Here’s the link…http://bit.ly/16Oiydk. You kids will love it.

    i just saw your blog via pinterest a pic of you pregnant at the beach with what looked like a one year old and i got excited…it looked like me out in LA, b/c i just had a baby boy 4 weeks ago when my baby girl turned 15 mo. LOL nice to see you doing the same thing and I am feeling less overwhelmed and lucky b/c i know things will be looking like this beautiful blog in no time for us too. plus we also are a juicing crazy family.

  82. Davina

    This is the most adorable video! Wish we had a plentitude of apples at the orchards in Southern California. It was definitely slim pickins’ this year :(
