Autumn Picnic

Saturday, Colette planned a fabulous autumn picnic for our whole family!  We discovered a u-pick orchard with a picnic table, and that’s the location we settled upon.

I bought a half peck of apples from the lady who owns the orchard, and she told me that her father bought the property in 1943 from it’s original owner.  The apple varieties she sells are: Paula Red, McIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Macoun, Delicious, and Baldwin.  She custom-mixed my half-peck of apples with varieties that make a good pie.  (Just made it tonight…quite tasty!)

Just had to share a photo of the house across the street from the orchard and it’s beautiful trees!  Isn’t it gorgeous?
The picnic food was gourmet sandwiches (made to order), organic grapes, red potato salad, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, and assorted beverages.  It was served “boxed lunch”-style!

Fun family times!
