We went to the Juicy Fruit apple orchard and to the Twin Pines cider works to get some apples and pumpkins. We were amazed at the crowds of people that were out to stroll through the orchards and fields of pumpkins on a beautiful sunny afternoon. One could hardly call the acres of pumpkins a pumpkin patch. We got a large basket of mixed apples for $3.00 and 2 nice medium pumpkins for $6.00. We also purchase a jug of Twin Pines Original hard cider to enjoy at ou leisure. Our home is only 10 minutes from the orchards so it is a small outing for us but I suspect most of the crowds consisted of people from the nearby cities of London and Sarnia. We will be ready for Halloween with a pair of Jack-o-lanterns. I better brush up on my carving skills. The apples will make a nice snack and I plan to try a new recipe for apple pie. It is a apple, cheese and bacon pie recipe which I will borrow from Canadian Living magazine.The leaves are still brilliant in their Fall glory. I took this picture from my front porch and the other is at the Parkhill Conservation area 1/4 mile from our home. We are blessed to live in such a beautiful environment.
