Apple Orchard Visit

We visited an apple orchard while at my daughter's
last weekend and I was able to snap a few photos to
share with you. Don't you just love all these cute
tiny pumpkins and gourds?

Larger white pumpkins for purchase...
they need a bath! lol

Loved this assortment of pumpkins/squash. My granddaughter thought some looked like they were covered with peanut shells.

I brought this greenish/yellowish one on the left side of the photo home with me. I think it is some type of squash, but I just loved the shape.

lovely produce

Hubby and son-in-law tasted the cheese, but I passed. I am sure it was yummy though.

organic popcorn

assorted honey sticks in many flavors for 25 cents each

of course we can't forget the apples! lol

pretty pot sitting outside

GD Allysha, GS Jon and DH on the hay ride we
went on. It was raining so it was nice they had a tarp
over the top!

The driver was supposed to stop at the pumpkin
patch and let us pick one out , but that didn't happen
for some reason so we just picked out a prepriced one
when we got back.
It was a very fun day despite all the rainy icky weather.
Hope you enjoyed your tour !

Oh yes, I missed photos of the most important part. lol.
They make donuts right there at the orchard and of
course we purchased some. They were delish!!

G'morn sweet Sandi ~
Don't you just love going to the pumpkin patch! I think I enjoy it more than the kid-lings do. Your 'babies' are so cute & DH is a 'looker', too ... chuckle!

Glad you all had such a fun time.

Have a beautiful PS ~
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

What a nice little visit. I'm so glad you support your local farmers. I'm going out to plant garlic this week, my mom use to plant bushels and bushels of it, and I never thought anything of it. Well I read someplace that all the garlic I purchase at the market comes from China. Not my house anymore. Garlic is actually good to grow, keeps the bugs off your roses. I don't know what my crop will be like but it should be interesting. I don't have a lot of yard, so it won't be the harvest my mother had... Thanks for sharing your day with us.

we had a very similar day today: picking apples, buying cider and native corn. tomorrow we're going back for pumpkins and hayrides.

LOVE fall!
