Let’s break up the monotony and go to Apple Hill!!!

So I am trying to help y'all learn to crochet…I hope you are enjoying the directions…especially you Lefties out there!

But I am tired of crocheting in front of my camera, I want to look at something other than my own hands on my blog…so how about I take you to Apple Hill!

We went on the weekend when my mom was in town…it was the first Fall-ish day of the year. Jackson got his arm/face painted at our first stop. He got Spiderman on his arm and webs on his face. Total cute-osity.

I really wish I could remember the name of this farm, because I would go back next year…Apple Hill is so big I have trouble finding farms I've been to before!

We also went to Abel's Acres and Jackson sized up some pumpkins for us…

But this toad scared the ever loving poo out of him! I guess it is pretty freaky. We finally coaxed him into touching the thing's eyeball a couple of times. Ewe.

Abel's had a fun selection of stuff. I am finally baking up the pie I bought there today…I hope it's as delicious as it looks. I already tried the apple butter from there and it was very good. Nice and dark with a thicker texture…yum.

We also got Apple Pumpkin bread, Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, Honey and Apples of course!

If you live in Northern California or will be visiting there in the fall…Apple Hill is a must visit!

    High Hill is a good one too. They have crafts and yummy apple donuts and a fudge shop. Mmm…I can’t wait to get me some apples and make some pie.

    I just found your blog. I’m trying to re-learn how to crochet and I’m so excited I stumbled upon your tutorials.
    And lemme just say, I LOVE Apple Hill! Haven’t been in years, seeing we live a few states over now, but I wish I could be out there lately! So fun. 🙂
