One thing I always enjoy doing in September is visiting an apple orchard. The Husband is fond of picking his own. I am willing to allow others that pleasure, and I'll choose mine from those they have picked.:-) We were recently able to make some purchases from Barber's Orchard near Waynesville, NC. The varieties available depend on those that are "in season."
I'm hearing remarks about decorating for fall. Before I feel like it's time for that, our high temperatures will have to be lower than the nineties! Maybe even lower than the high-eighties! This feels like the middle of summer, not the verge of autumn!
I'll wait until October to spread the pumpkins and mums around, maybe even the middle of the month. Our front steps face the west, and the heat from that setting sun is certainly able to roast a pumpkin!
"What do you do with the apples from the orchard?" Is that what you are wondering? The following pictures show the journey of some McIntosh apples.
The first apple pie of the season!
