And it was slim pickin's on the apples...It was also very crowded. We're used to going on weekdays as a field trip, I don't like crowds. Too bad too cause I would have purchased quite a few books from their store because they had a bunch of educational ones I would have liked to have used.
So we drove back down a bit & went to another 'farm' & took a hay ride & chose pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. The hay ride driver was VERY nice & friendly. I'd like to go back because across the street was owned by the same family/people & they had a shop & apples ect.
We drove a bit further down to a place called SnowLine, we've also been thee before. They have a small apple shop...bags of apples were around $9!!! YIKES! I would have liked to buy some to make apple pies, but @ that price, I'll just go to the grocery.
I DID get a gallon of apple cider.....around $9 for a gallon! YIKESABEE! But it's totally fresh & delish! AND the most cutest pie top cutter. It's got a bunch of little apples around a big apple cut out for the top of your apple pie. It will top my pies perfectly! And of course we all shared a big juicy caramel apple.
I DO have to say that is ONE main reason I am SO glad to be back @ 'home'. Not sure if I've ever mentioned it before...but I have an antique (vintage?) OKeefe & Merritt stove...& I've baked ALOT of GOOD pies in it. I LOVE that stove! :-)
Yah, so we've got more pumpkins then we really need but so what right? ;-)
