A beautiful day in New England!
You have just got to love this time of year! The air is crisp and cool ! The sky couldn`t be any more blue!
What a great day to go apple picking!
So we jumped into the car and drove off to Greenville Rhode Island. We went to an old familiar apple orchard. And to our surprise they`ve added a hay ride down to the apple fields and back!
Pumpkins everywhere, fresh Rhode Island maple syrup (From Charlies Sugar House in Greene, RI), gourds, and apples galore!!!
The trees were loaded with apples. As we picked them, we had to sample a few of them too. Fresh, crisp and juicy...
We didn`t get enough, you can never have enough apples... Only kidding a peck of macs and a half peck of macouns. Some small orange pumpkins, a beautiful bright burgundy mum and off we went to find Nick some apple cider. The cider press was broken unfortunately at Steeres Orchard.
We can`t have a complete apple picking day with out apple cider. The orchard cashier in the barn directed us to Jaswell`s Orchard in Smithfield, RI. Their cider press is operating. So Nick got his apple cider and some fresh baked pastries. A BONUS!!!
Its nice to have Nick home for a few days from college! A bonus weekend off, no classes due to Rosh Hashanah. He goes back on Tuesday night for classes on Wednesday.
He`s adjusting to college life and I`m adjusting to him being gone. It helps that I`m working everyday at my job and also in my shop!
A really fun filled day! And the weather was gorgeous!
Now its been a while, but I am getting back into the blog groove, now that it gets dark earlier and everything. When the weather is nice and it stays light out late, its hard to sit myself down and do my blog.
I`ve got some common herbs to share with you tonight and some basic information on them. If you can treat an ailment or condition naturally, then thats what I`m all about.
