Waited too long....

I planned on going to the apple orchard with my family October 11th since my favorite apples (cameo) ripen in October. I checked the orchard's website this morning and saw that they're closed for the season as of the 3rd! NOOOOO!!!!! With company coming this weekend for Charlotte's birthday, apple picking can't be squeezed into the schedule.

I checked many other apple orchards in the area and they're all closed early. I'm so sad! I had hoped to pick 3 bushels this year. I'm hoping I can find some at the Farmer's Market but I know I'll pay a lot more for them.

Right about now I really wish I had a few acres and my own orchard.
