Fall Orchard Outing
I want to live somewhere that has this weather 75% of the year. It's dry and sunny and 65 degrees, without any wind. This weekend we took an afternoon at the County Line Orchard with some friends. Apparently the rest of the state line area also decided to take the afternoon ... It was packed!!
Jon refused to take a picture by this sign, because "they spelled it wrong." We didn't take home any Jonathon apples because they tasted bland, but we did end up with a bag full of McIntosh, Gala, and Jubilee Fiji. I think I have enough to make 2 pies.
Besides picking apples, we drank hot apple cider, ate apple pie with ice cream, and sampled various dips and spreads. OH. And ate pumpkin donuts. There were hundreds and hundreds of people at the orchard, and you could smell the donuts from way out in the field where we parked. It was out of control delicious.
