We'd be wearing jackets and feel the crisp chilly air of fall. We'd pick bright red and green apples just spilling from the huge leafy trees. Then we'd have some hot apple cider and bake a pretty apple pie with our winnings.
Nope, it was hot. No jackets, no hot cider. Just the glaring sun. But, it was fun none-the-less. The cider was excellent cold. I didn't even want to add spices to it, it was so perfect. The apples were great too and they let you eat as many as you want while you're picking. We ate three apples each. Then we hated apples. We bought a baker's dozen and a half cider donuts, with the plan on giving some away. Nope, we ate them all. Now, we hate donuts too. Can't wait to go pumpkin patching!
While we were there, they looked to be running low on apples. So, go now if you want to go at all! We went to Kuiper's Family Farm in Maple Park, IL. They have a great gift shop too, I got my mom some pumpkin butter. They also have caramel apples. Anyone else been apple picking this season? Where did you go?
