Fall is arriving in Georgia. One of my absolute favorite things to do in October is to drive to the North Georgia Mountains for a visit to the apple orchards. Just uploading photos for this blog makes me happy:) My cousin Peg visited us from Houston last week so a trip was planned.
Our favorite place to visit is Ellijay, Georgia. There is an area with many, many warehouses ready to captivaate visitors.
Many varieties of apples are available for purchase. Mutsu is our favorite, but we sample and purchase many varieties.
Not only are there fresh apples, but jellies, jams, pickles, baked goods (fried pies and apple cake are my favorites), fresh vegetables, apple cider........
Located a couple of miles from the apple warehouses is Burt's Pumpkin Farm.
Lots and lots of pumpkins!
a wonderful place for families
You know from reading the sign that someone did all of these things.
