Sunflower Field …

We’ve had a few people stop in the shop to ask where they can find our sunflower field.  Well .. the picture below is our sunflower “field” this year …

IMG_7746

Sadly, the sunflower field did not grow as it has in the past.  We planted the seeds when it was too wet and we had a fail in this department.  Sorry everyone!  We’ll try again next year!

IMG_5422We do have some volunteer sunflowers that have sprung up around the orchard though … and some are TALL.

And the flowers around the shop are absolutely stunning!

I have a hard time walking by them and not snapping a picture.

These pink ones are so delicate and they’re right in front of the shop so I get to enjoy them every time I walk into the front door.

Red Gravenstein Apples–Saucesational Analysis

I took a couple of our Red Gravenstein Apples and I peeled, cored and sliced them and put them in my min crock pot.

Red Gravenstein Applesauce

I turned the crock pot on high and in about an hour and a half I had some applesauce.

Red Gravenstein Applesauce

The red gravenstein definitely cooked down into a fairly smooth sauce.  The sauce was jaw-tingly tart and sharp.  Not my favorite on its own but would definitely add some great flavor mixed with other apples.

Opening Day of 2017 Apple Season

On opening day the lovely Karmen Lindner of Karmen Lindner Photography stole my camera and took a few photo’s of folks enjoying the start of the 2017 season.  I was thrilled with how beautiful they turned out I thought you would also enjoy seeing them.

IMG_7817You will be seeing these three lovely ladies around the orchard a lot this year – they’re getting old enough that they’re actually SUPER helpful!  They’ll also be doing fundraisers with their sports teams some of the weekends to help raise money for equipment and events – I’ll keep you all posted but be prepared for softball, basketball and gymnastic fundraisers!

For opening day they dressed special – Capri was sunshine, Pip was a tree, and Cedi was the “young lady.”IMG_7761IMG_7762IMG_7767IMG_7769IMG_7788 

Caramel apples!  Yummy!

IMG_7791IMG_7797

IMG_7799She’s a little blurry but Diane is in charge of the sorting room and keeping all of our shelves stocked!  She’s also up at the register if I am called elsewhere.  We have discovered this year that Cedi can not only lift a bushel of apples but also she can carefully load them onto the sorter.  It may just be possible that Grandma Diane’s job will get slightly easier … time will tell!IMG_7801

We’ll have sweet corn for the next few weeks – it’s delicious and we’re growing it right here at the orchard!

IMG_7802The majority of the fall you’ll be seeing me, Kim, behind the register!  I’m also the person behind these blog posts, the facebook page, the app and the newsletter.  Both Jared and I have control of the instagram account so if something odd is posted it’s all Jared!

IMG_7803IMG_7807

This lovely little lady was pretty excited for some apple cider donuts!

IMG_7809One thing we might be doing for fundraisers are caramel apple sundae’s or caramel apple sundae bars.  I’ll be sure to post on facebook if there is one happening so you don’t miss out on this special delicious treat!

IMG_7749I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the Lapacek’s and the Lindner’s scheming up some fun things to offer you all this apple season!  Stay tuned!

I know I was supposed to be not thinking about things but I had to sneak a picture or two.  I love the sun in this shot!

breathing yoga bloomsIt couldn’t have been a more perfect night.  For shavasana the sun and moon where out at the same time!

I've done a 1000 yoga classes and enjoyed them all but this was so special... truly thankful to our host and instructor for what will likely be my fave class ever. Sun, moon, breeze, amazing scenery, and hour of personal time. I Have so many things to be thankful for!  ~Jeannie H.
