Thursday Thirteen #79: Eplegaarden

Weekend before last we had a family outing to Eplegaarden, a local orchard and pumpkin patch not too far from where I live. I don't think my niece enjoyed herself at all. Nope, not one bit, as photographic evidence will prove. At almost four, The Bug has become quite the expert in apple picking. *grin* (Click on any image for a larger view.)

Many of the trees were already past their peak,
with more apples under rather than on them.

Look at all those lovely apples up there,
high above our heads and out of reach
(climbing and ladders are not allowed).

Note the concentration on that face!

Taking a short break.

Ooh...this one looks good. And this one, and this one...

Can't I take the whole branch??

If you missed the apple recipes from two weeks ago, you can find them here.

Great blog! We just had our local Apple Harvest Festival and the kids love it!

Mmmmm... apples!

She's such a cutie!!!!! We just had our Apple Harvest here and I missed it. *sigh*
It's an awesome time of year.

Debbie Mumford said...

What a doll! Fall wouldn't be fall without apples...especially apple cider.

Nadia said...

Ohh...apples!!!! I so miss apple picking. Love the pics. :)

Adelle~ You are so right, and the nice thing about the orchard is that they do allow you to sample as you pick. The Bug polished off at least two that afternoon!

Inez and Jennifer~ An apple festival sounds fun. There are some communities around here that hold them, but none really close.

Debbie~ You are sooo right--nothing says fall like (warm) apple cider. Mmm...

Mel said...

OOh looks like you guys had so much fun. It makes me want apple crisp and vanilla ice cream.

Heather said...

Mel~ Mmm...that sounds really good right now. lol

Janice said...

Aw, I think your niece had a good time.

Happy TT.
