Apple Pickin'

The Winter Banana Apple- it's my favorite. Definitely the prettiest!
Sam is home now and we decided to head out to Green Bluff for some apple picking. We had the best time talking to the Hanson's and learning the history of their farm. We got the low down on the best apples that keep the longest through the winter. There are so many varieties. We sampled some fresh pressed grape cider and cherry cider. We bought some hearty 7-grain cereal from Montana. We saw how much Ginger has grown. It was a great fall day.

That looks like a wonderful day! Wish I could have come over with Caleb and spent a day at an orchard - and had a visit with you guys!

Yes I would have loved it if you could have come. I don't think I have your e-mail. Can you send it to me at

You guys have to all come out and visit us some time.

Winter Banana Apple, eh? I don't think I've heard of that before. Is it a good eating apple? Now I really want to go to Green Bluff!

Don't you love taking pictures in an orchard? There's something so 'fall' about your close-up shots!
