Today we went to Mercier’s Orchard in North Georgia to pick apples with our cousins. The Orchard is 200 acres and has 50 varieties of apples, not to mention lots of other fruits like peaches, strawberries, and blueberries. We picked a kind of apples called Ginger Gold.
We also got to sample the apples as we picked—delicious!
After we finished picking apples, which took about 45 minutes, we rode the tractor back down from the orchards and went into the store. We sampled apple and peach cider and looked around. We found this old tractor.
Then we ate lunch at the restaurant there, bought some fried apple pies (we couldn’t leave without getting some!), and went home. We had a great time. It was a beautiful day, and the scenery wasn’t bad, either.
But the best part, by far, was being able to spend time with our family.
