Apple Orchard Time

It's that time of the year to hit the apple orchards for some delicious fruit and veggies.  We did just that the other day in NC at Justus Orchards.
They normally have small animals for the kids to pet but they weren't out yet.   They also have a wagon ride for anyone to enjoy.
They have a beautiful view of the mountains.
The red roofed house sits on the back side of the property.

Some parts of NC lost their apples due to a very late frost this past Spring.   Justus Orchards were spared and have an over abundance.                                   
To pick blueberries you have to take the road near their house.  I couldn't resist taking a pic.

Couldn't come home without some fresh produce.   Loved eating those peaches and berries.

I still have a few apples left.   Would you like one?
All good things must come to an end.   Check out that view as we head home.
What's been happening around your house?

I would pick the blackberries! Love them but they are usually so expensive that I don't get them often. Love this time of the year!

We have a huge Farmer's Market nearby and the peaches (they grow almost everything they sell), have been so wonderful this year. It is apple time here too. I hope to pay them a little visit tomorrow and re-stock my veggies and fruits. That's a gorgeous view!

These are beautiful photos! What a great place to visit and load up on fruit. We have an orchard near our home in Michigan and they have a restaurant, gift shop and little grocery store. I just love going there. It's a fun way to spend the day! :)

That is so beautiful! Love all the fresh fruit! I can't wait to get some apples in a few weeks. The view was amazing!

What a fun day at the orchard. Your pics are so inviting and I love that fruit you share.
Sounds like the perfect day to inspire for the fall season.

Got home from my hair color appt. All is good for another 4 weeks. LOL!!! Have fun!!
See you soon,

I am looking forward to visiting an apple orchard and getting some fresh, crisp apples and apple cider. I'm not familiar with Justus Farms, but it looks like a nice one. I'll have to Google it.
I'm sorry to hear about your surgery and long recovery. Glad you are feeling better now.
Take Care.

Your post reminds me that I need to get to a farm market! Usually go to pick up gourds and pumpkins, but I'm always enticed by the fruits and the Angel Food cakes! Can't come home without some sweets. :-).
