Down on the Farm

I’m a week late, but here is last Saturdays’ fun…

Every summer, even when I was overdue with Patrice, we go blueberry picking. This year we went another step and went apple picking.  I got votes from Facebook and we headed to the orchard overwhelming mentioned, Erwin’s.

We had no idea what to expect.  And what expectations we did have, were wrong.  The lines were longer than expected, but we enjoyed it so much.  The orchard is across from a pharmacy, behind a subdivision and HUGE!!!  We got off at the first stop on the wagon ride out to the trees, not knowing it was the first stop.  We had paid for a bushel.  I was afraid the girls would be bored to tears before we were done.  Turns out picking apples is way quicker than strawberries or blueberries.  We were done in about 10 minutes.

Taking pictures took much longer.  Much, much longer.

And today, half a bushel of apples became 5 quarts of applesauce.
