This City Mouse meets a Country Mouse

I nearly forgot about this picture. A bout a month ago, we left ventured out of the city to go apple picking at Terhune Orchards in Princeton, NJ. Its a lovely large farm which usually has a large variety of apples for picking and purchase.

Unfortunately for us, we visited on the last weekend of the apple picking season and the trees were largely picked pretty bare. So, it took some scrounging to find good choices. Even when we did find apples, we have to contend with locals that had gotten there first.

That’s the price you pay for organic, I guess. I’m just glad that I saw the mouse before I reached to grab the apple. I’m an animal lover, but I don’t need a field mouse on or in my hands.

  1. I love that farm. I take my kids there every year during the harvest season. I never had a mouse encounter but, after reading this, next time I’ll be on high alert.
