On this very warm late summer day we went apple picking. My DD and my older GS came too.He's almost 17, and 6 feet tall so he really came in handy for the high ones.
Here we are he and I on one of the cute displays that the farm puts out every year.
We had to cajole him into standing in front of this height measure. It only goes to 6' !
We picked around 30 pounds of apples as well as a few late plums and also Asian pears.
There are gourds for sale too. I needed a few more for my Fall decorations.
They had assorted jams, jellies and pies for sale in the little shop. At $9 a pie I wasn't willing to get any but there was one that was an apple/caramel/crumble and I think I'll be making one of those as soon as I get some of those wrapped caramels that are available around this time of year.
I will also be getting out the dehydrator and hopefully have better luck drying apple slices than I did with Apricots. I will be freezing apple slices for winter crisps and pies. I have my work cut out for me. It really is starting to feel like Fall!
Thanks for visiting today. Granny Marigold
