We go to the local orchards and get pumpkins and look around at the craft booths that are often there. As far as picking apples, we have a granny smith tree in the front yard ;oaded with apples and my neighbors have apple trees that go unpicked, so we get lots of apples from their trees. They are happy to have them picked so they don't have to rake them up..... This year dd and her bf are going to help me do tons of apple recipes to put up and we'll send her bf home with plenty for her family.... It should be fun...... I have plenty of sugar and cinnamon on hand...
Went to the Apple Festival in Hendersonville, NC last weekend and picked a bushel full, then one of the guys that works for DH brought us another bushel by yesterday afternoon. Up to my eyeballs in apples! Look out kitchen, here I come! LMAO. SO tired of cooking this week, did several OAMC sessions as well. But at least I won't have to worry about what my guys will eat while I'm in Texas.
I think my MIL, FIL and Angie go to the apple festival in Hendersonville, but I'm not sure if they went this year. I know that they go somewhere up there and pick apples. Last year she gave me two jars of apple butter.
I love apples and if I knew a place to go get some good ones (besides the store) I'd be there in a heartbeat.
