Pumpkin Hollow Primitive blog turns 1 today!! Can it truly be already?? Gee Whiz... This is fixing to be a big week. This post is number 93 (closing fast on 100!), and Farmerboy (aka my son) will be turning 21 years old on the 6th. Definitely some big happenings around here! Kind of funny how everything centers in on my favorite month of the year. :) Even the weather is cooperating with temps in the mid 70's. Talk about Karma... ;)
For my year marker, I cannot think of a better post than the trip we just took to Gayes Mills, WI for their Applefest. They have a huge flea market, a parade, and best of all... the apple orchards are all open to visit!! This is my favorite trip of the year. I just LOVE visiting Sunrise Orchard. Here is a pic of my McIntosh apples. I picked up two bags to make a bushel. They consider them seconds, but they look way better than the ones I get at the store, and they only cost $18.00 for the bushel!
Two gallons of apple cider found their way into our vehicle, along with 2 dozen cider donuts that were freshly made. Yum!! Lucky for us, there was a bag of caramels in the freezer at home, so I cut up some fresh apple slices to pour the hot melted caramels over. Double Yum!!
I almost forgot to add my finds from the flea market! My mind gets distracted by "good eats"! ;) One of the vendors had some cool Shiney Brite ornaments, and I am a Shiney Brite junkie. ( Before I end this post, I'll have to check my memory card on my camera for a photo of my collection to add to this post.) As you can see, there were two boxes of the smaller specialty shaped ornaments and two boxes of the mini ornaments. My hubby was relieved to see that I was being picky! LOL
