We’d gotten flyers in the mail from some of the farms about what apples are in season, and were so excited to head out for our yearly tradition. We didn’t bother to call ahead – we never had before, why would we start now? So, we piled in two cars and drove the 90 minutes up to the apples.
Only, sadly, there were no apples. We found out that due to a frost this season, the apple crops were affected, and apparently all their ripe apples had been picked last weekend. As well as every other farm up in Oak Glen. This was really disappointing. I’m sure it’s disappointing for them, but to drive 90 minutes with kids in tow for a day of NO apple picking is really not what we had in mind.
But, we came all this way, so what can we do? We can pick raspberries! Let’s go!
The kids love Pat & Lea – and love Baby Jake!
After filling our baskets, we headed across the street to have lunch.
And even though we didn’t get to pick them ourselves, we still walked away with plenty of apples.
Well, for now we say, “Good-bye Oak Glen! We’ll see you next year… only next time, we’ll call first!”
