Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

Chalk It Up

IMG_0841The second session of Kids in the Orchard involved attempting to chalk our entire driveway!  Folks got started as soon as they arrived!IMG_0848I went on pinterest and even found a few recipes to make my very own chalk!

7 ways to make ice chalk

and Make your Own Pavement Chalk


I would say that it worked pretty well – the ice chalk would have worked better if it would have been warmer out.  As it was we sort of just left in in random places to let it melt a bit before we tried to use it.  On a hot day, I’m pretty sure it would have been usable without the melting time necessary. 

IMG_0859Kids of all ages joined in the fun!IMG_0860IMG_0879Even the adults got into the chalking fun!IMG_0881So proud of her dolphin!  I love it!!!!IMG_0885Oh Kelin!  IMG_0886I had an ‘Inspiration Station’ with ideas written on popsicle sticks that the kids could pick out of the jar.  One of them was ‘spool of thread.’  I was of course thrilled to see all the fabulous spools around the driveway!IMG_0888IMG_0890Here the kids are squirting on vinegar to the chalk to see it fizz.  This particular home made chalk included a bit of baking powder so when it was sprayed with vinegar it would fizz!  So fun!IMG_0897

Pip and Capri really getting into it!IMG_0898Cedi said she liked chalk day because she could just relax, draw, and hang out with her friend Georgia.IMG_0912IMG_0916IMG_0917IMG_0900

Snack time!  This week for snack time we did a twist on the delicious pickle roll up!  We picked some lettuce from Mercedi’s garden and the kids could pick what they wanted to roll up in it…

  • cream cheese
  • hummus
  • olives
  • pickles
  • pickled beans
  • all of the above
  • a mixture of some of the items above


I think Evelyn enjoyed it!


We also had the kiddo’s paint the ‘Beverage’ stand…I’ll post ‘finished’ pictures later…

Stay tuned for what we have planned for next Wednesday!!!
