Because our first trip to the apple orchard was lacking apples on the trees, we headed out to another orchard last weekend.
AND there were apples GALORE!
We absolutely LOVE this orchard. It is about 25 minutes away from our home, but it is well worth it.
The farm is one of the biggest around and they have just about every variety of apple you could imagine.
On Sunday when we were there, we could pick Pears, or Jonagold Apples.
Since I am the only one that eats pears, we decided to go for the apples.
It was a gorgeous day and I think everyone in the area had the same idea, because the line for the bus that takes you into the orchard was LONG.
This is one of the best things about this place. The orchard is so large, they literally bus you directly to your picking spot.
And these are not just any ordinary buses, they are convertible school buses.
The girls giggle the entire time we are riding along.
I quickly snapped this with my iphone and posted on instagram while we waiting for the next bus.
You can see why the girls look forward to this part of the trip:)
When we got off the bus, we were directed where to pick.
It was pretty congested in our row of trees, there were about 30 other people out there picking with us, but there were plenty of apples to go around. Sarah and Reagan had our box filled with about 20 pounds of Jonagolds in a matter of minutes.
They are great baking apples..... now I just need some time to get in the kitchen and bake up some apple goodness.
Every year I make a to die for apple bundt cake.
I have posted the recipe multiple times over the years, you can find it HERE.
Anyone have any other favorite apple recipes?
I would love to try something new.
If you have a recipe, please share.
Have a wonderful weekend.
It will be a busy one here....a week from today, I have a special group of ladies arriving for a very fun photography weekend.
Lots of preparing has gone into this weekend and I am already feeling anxious....so many small details and I want everything to be just perfect. If you are the praying type, we would appreciate some "good weather" prayers and also some prayers that everyone who is traveling to get here, arrives safely and without delay.
I will be sharing some of the fun things I have prepared next week!!
