An Apple a Day
So posting pictures is not my strength as a blogger. We've been having all kind of fall fun and I haven't posted any of it. I really have so many pictures I haven't made any effort to post. I'll see what I get around to.
But you can't live in Ohio in the fall and not post about apple picking at Lynds Fruit Farm. We only had one Saturday open the entire fall. It was of course the coldest Saturday all month...snow flurries and all. And me with no coat. But with the help of a warm funnel cake and some fresh hot apple cider, we managed.
I believe it was Grandpa Lynd himself who took us on a private tractor-pulled hay ride. He stopped off to pick us some of his favorite special variety of apples almost as big as our heads. It was apple ecstasy. Spencer and I commented how in complete honesty we've never had a better apple in our lives.
We picked pumpkins while we were there. Right off the vine. That was a little short lived. I was freezing at that point.
Spencer talked me into picking way more apples than we needed...but we've been enjoying them ever since.
