Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch



I was blessed to be able to go with Gemma's class today on a visit to a nearby Fruit Farm in Greenbluff, near Spokane. The weather was glorious, the kids were well-behaved, and the apples were delicious! What a GREAT day!

Scenes from the Pea box...that's right...PEAS! Brilliant! SOOO much easier to get out of socks, shoes, and hair than sand.






Farmer Joy takes us around the orchard in a tractor.


Looking for the perfect apple tree

I picked this apple!

First bite...YUM!
