It's another beautiful fall weekend, and for a lot of us that means an opportunity for apple picking. Last year was a terrible fall for the northeast’s apple harvest, and some orchards didn’t open for public picking at all. WSHU’s Craig LeMoult spoke with Brian Kelliher, chairman of the Connecticut Apple Marketing Board and the owner of Easy Pickens Orchard in Enfield, about how things are looking this year.

You can find a Connecticut orchard to visit here.
