Wow, MaryJane, What a great Apple Adventure on Apple Pie Sunday! I am fascinated with all of your heirloom apples in the farm just doing their own thing. Like that marriage of Apple and pears creating a fantastic product. Those sneaky bees have been at it again. Lol!!! I bet you did get an interesting flavor. Did you know that Perry Ciders , which are hard ciders, are made from mixing pears and apples? It is delicious and just a tad sweet but not overly so. There is a company in Canada that makes it using Michigan organic apples and Canadian pears and somehow we have a store in my town that sells it.

Well, I did manage to find a pub for lunch during our free time yesterday that had apple pie on the menu. It was served with a pitcher of cream , but sadly just wasn't that good. Sigh. But my Apple in my purse was good , so I ended up still being able to celebrate Apple
pie Sunday!

I bought my apple festival garden flag in. It's been out since Sept 1st. It'll be good for a third year - maybe more.

Sadly I didn't get a chance to make an apple pie yesterday, which I was really looking forward to. Instead we indulged in applesauce to make up for it! I will have to try out an apple pie here shortly and hopefully next year I will be able to participate!

I am setting aside time tomorrow to get my Apple pie baking done. Need to make the crusts. I am doing as many as I can for the freezer too.

My apple pie was made and consumed quickly! Apple pie is my oldest son's favorite and he declared it "excellent". We had a fun family dinner! I have always loved apples, and learned about new varieties that are available locally.

Vicki, so happy to hear that your apple pie was a hit of your oldest son!! Apples are just so much fun and good for you too. They are my favorite fruit.

We were on the road for Apple Pie Sunday, but Ed bought me a small apple pie at a fast food stop to celebrate. LOL! It was good, but definitely not as good as homemade. I have apples and am still going to make a fresh pie - one of these days.

I missed making a pie on Sunday! But I did make Caramel Apple Cupcakes last night!

Today is Johnny Appleseed day at my son's school and I dropped off 40 cupcakes this morning for his class.

There are bit of apple as well as apple butter in the spice cake cupcake part. Then you pipe a ring of cream cheese frosting on top (it has a bit of apple butter whipped into it too!) and then a dollop of caramel ice cream topping goes in the center.

I tried one - OF COURSE! :) It was rockin'! Would definitely make again!

Children---I am truly having an apple festival. Our friends at a beautiful subdivision gave us all their apples from old trees on their property. I am freezing and drying and the donkeys and goats are having a ball eating the windfalls. And the farm work goes on and on and on. Waiting for winter---it is play time for me.

Went to an apple orchard today for some fall favorites. Butternut squash, acorn squash, pumpkins for my son and of course apples. My favorite are Macoun. They sell big bags of seconds that I like for applesauce. They had 4 bags but there were only 2 different types. I asked someone if they had a bag of mixed seconds. She seemed confused and then I noticed the girl behind her waving her hands and saying something. When she got closer she said I have 2 bags of mixed seconds and I was trying to figure out how I would sell them. Well, I said I will take them both! I was a bit surprised they don't have people asking for mixed seconds. They make the best applesauce!
I remember my grandmother calling the farmer down the road asking if she can pick up apples off the ground. Then came the applesauce marathon! The farmer had known her all her life and since he wouldn't sell apples that fell to the ground he was happy to have her pick them up.

Andrea, Your trip to an apple orchard sounds like fun and was a great way to bring home lots of farm goodness to enjoy!

This year's Apple Festival at MJF was a lot of fun again. I always enjoy hearing other Farmgirl stories and experiences. And, isn't it amazing how many recipes are shared for Apple Pie Sunday?? Apple recipes are in abundance everywhere and I never tire of trying new ones either.

Thank-you all for participating this past month for our annual online celebration. Each year is different and each year more and more Farmgirls are contributing to all the fun and information. Personally, I enjoyed the entire month's celebration and my thanks to everyone who participated.

Thanks to Maine Pomologist, John Bunker who created this apple ID chart for one of the festivals he participates in Maine each fall. People love to come and learn the names of the apples they find and eat and also have a chance to
bring their questions and apples for his input.

I'm a tad late - but wanted to share that we did take a day trip to our beautiful Hood River Fruit Loop a week ago and it was a wowser of a day. Couldn't have been a more beautiful day on it's own merit - but a beautiful day in Hood River is simply breath taking. We visited several farms and orchards, picked 60 lbs of various applies, which my boys LOVED! and picnicked near one of Hood Rivers lavendar farms. I have made apple pie, apple bread, home made apple sauce and still have about 30 lbs of apples to go. I wanted to share some pictures with you all - if you ever get chance to visit the fruit loop, please do so, you will not regret it! Happy Fall from my little corner of the world!!

Our beautiful Mt. Hood!


Me with beautiful farmland behind me!
This was across the road from the lavendar farm that we picnicked at!


Some of our hand picked apples!


One of my apple pies!


A few peeks at the Fruit Loop Brochure to share with you all!






Happy Fall!!

April, thanks for sharing and for a look at those gorgeous pictures.
Lots of apple treasures for you to enjoy.

Winnie, where did you find the apple chart. Will have to get on my laptop so I can see it clearer. Would love to fins a chart to print out and hang in my kitchen.
I picked up some Gala apples this week. Nice and crunchy. I prefer my eating apples to be crunchy, once they aren't I have to cook them up.

Denise, this photo came from John Bunker's blog. John is the person who lives in Maine that I visited in 2014 and learned more about his farm where he has cultivated heirloom apple varieties from his area of Maine. He runs an apple CSA every year for locals to get apples from his farm and try out so many different varieties that have been lost. John created this chart because he does a lot of talks at festivals and other places about apples and this chart is helpful to put a picture with the actual fruit so others might be able to identify what they too have in their own yard.

Have the last picked apples cooking in the crockpot. At least I hope I can make sauce that way. My kitchen is gutted for a remodel job. The apples are a yellow apple, from our cow pasture. So who knows what kind they are. They are big and beautiful, and sweet. I do have a few apples in my fridge for eating, Fireside and Honey crisp, from our trees.

Crockpot applesauce is so easy. I haven't done mine yet this year. I need to find my canning jars and get started!

Winnie I will look up his blog. Thank you!
