At a young age my Mom taught me how to make the perfect apple pie (yep, it's a family secret) and since then I have been in love with apples!! Due to the Michigan weather, the apple picking season will start a week earlier then last year. I know we are in the heat of August, and just finished up with the blueberry festival, but just think, in a few short weeks we can be making pie, drinking cider, and picking apples!  Since I have been out of town for a few years, I would love to know the best places to go picking!! Thoughts please.
