Patterson Fruit Farm Afternoon

Rain, rain, go away...

In spite of the downpour, we still managed to have a fun afternoon at Patterson Fruit Farm. As with tradition, the middle of October calls for a trip for apple picking and selecting a pumpkin or two for carving. Both Bridget and Megan selected their own pumpkins - carving will take place next weekend! Apple picking was fun albeit freezing cold. The Ida Reds were especially delicious as you get to taste or sample each of the apple varieties. We came home with a wonderful haul of Ida Reds, Jonathon and Golden Delicious apples. Can't wait to start baking!

We're soaked in this picture and had to take it under a tent because the rain was falling too hard!

Thank goodness we wore our rain boots - the mud around the apple trees was thick and slippery. But just look at how delicious these apples are - well worth the rain!


  1. Love the new blog look! AND your coffee shop/gallery idea.... you know we would have to call the coffee side, The Keen Bean, right ? Happy Monday!

  2. That would be a perfect name! Think about how cool it would be to have a kindergarten exhibit and come up with different milk drinks, mocktails for the teens. It would be fun!
