Apple Picking!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This weekend was MARVELOUS indeed!

This weekend I managed to cross off a “to do” on my fall to-do list!
 This weekend found us heading up to Ellijay, Georgia to visit B.J. Reece Orchards!

B.J. Reece Orchards is a family owned orchard that delights patrons with activities such as picking a peck or two of apples, taking a hayride, romping around with goats and pigs at the petting zoo, gorging on fritters and other bakery delicacies…

as well as perusing the shelves of the store for every imaginable flavor of fruit preserve and fruit butter made!

In looking up facts about apples – this one stood out – and when something stands out…well, I just simply have to share…

So – would you rather pick your own apples or buy an already picked peck?

These apples & pumpkins look marvelous and I love Granny Smiths! I would do both depending on the location…

This sounds so fun to me! I wish that apple picking was popular in Spain, because I'd definitely love to pick my own :)

on my to-do list for 13 yrs! I better go..

I'd love to pick apples - but wouldn't know what to do with so many since I don't like apple pie. The boys in my house love apples and eat them everyday but I worry if we'll get through so many before they spoil!
