Stone's Apple Orchard

We spent the most glorious autumn afternoon at a local apple orchard. We picked 20+ pounds of fresh, crisp apples. We wandered aimlessly through the tidy rows of trees (nestled next to the tidy rows of corn, of course). We sat on hay while riding a tractor (a green one). We admired the farm animals (Kate from a distance, Leah up close and personal). We basked in the radiant October sunlight (have I mentioned how much I love October?). 

And we will be going back next year (a little earlier in the season so we can snag some Honeycrisp).

And now for an abundance of pictures. After that, I'm off to make applesauce, apple juice, apple crisp and apple chips. I'll be in the kitchen if you need me.
