A Perfect Pick!

September 23, 2021

On Tuesday, my husband and I picked a peck of apple-icious apples!

Pick a Peck

Each picked apple conjured up tasty treats – apple sauce, apple crunch, apple pie, apple cake, apple donuts, apple cider, apple butter…

It was a beautiful day at Sunnycrest Apple Farm and Farmer’s Market.

Apples, and Mums, and Pumpkins, – Oh, my!

There was no need to mask up. We had wide-open spaces to roam up and down rows of apple trees.

There were no crowds, but the branches were jam-packed with apples.

After picking our pick of apples, we splurged and bought ourselves a special treat.

Yum!

It was a great day to be out in the fresh air and sunshine. Now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Apple anyone?

Remember. An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Pick one of these apple books.

Apple Pickin’ Time

September 29, 2016

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The foliage puts on its best show. The days are crisp. And the apples are oh, so delicious! It’s time for apple picking – Courtland, Macintosh, Red Gala, Braeburn … Yum! Yum! Yum!
