On a whim this weekend, we decided to stop by the apple orchard and pick up some fresh apples. Unfortunately, when we got there, the owner of the orchard told us that once again the pickings were slim (this happened to us last year too). She said that most varieties are ready late September, early October, even into November, but this year, by Labor Day weekend, people had picked many of those trees bare! Argh! There were a few varieties still on the trees, and we were able to pick a basket full of apples (including some HOney Crisps!!!) and one of pears. We also picked some peppers that were yummy!
Lily demonstrated how difficult it is to bite into an apple when you are missing 7 front teeth! LOL
