I could go on and on about how much I love Autumn, but I think I've listed enough ^_^
I recently went to an apple orchard with my sister, her husband, and my little brother. Unfortunately due to the horrible droughts of Summer 2012, many of the orchards around here will not be open this season. Because of the shortage, we couldn't actually pick the apples off the trees. They had them all salvaged in barrels. It was more like going to a beautiful farmer's market! The apples tasted amazing and I think I found my new favorite kind, the Jonagold! It's awesome marriage between sweet and sour and the actual fruit is so crisp and delicious. Not to mention, it's a BEAUTIFUL gold apple with crimson smeared all over it. It kinda looks like it was painted haha. I still love my Fuji, Gala, and Honey Crisp though :)
The place we went to is called All Seasons Orchard. There were pumpkins everywhere, pig races, which we unfortunately missed out on, beautiful trees, dancing, a play palace type...situation hehe, and a petting zoo! Since it's open all 4 seasons, hence the name, I'd love to see what they have to offer in the winter. Christmas trees? Poinsettias? I guess we'll have to see ^_^
Here are some pictures of our visit :)
Yay for the new season!
Get Your Feast On!
