Minnesota is not exactly known as the land of fruit and honey, but two things it does have - corn and apples. This particular orchard in Afton has both - a corn maze, apple orchards, even strawberry and raspberries and pumpkins! As a child I used to dream of having a backyard full of fruit trees - oranges and lemons and pears and the occasional palm. These things my grandmother had in tropics a plenty - but back home - not so much. So when autumn comes around, I'm jumping with for harvest season. Even better this year that we get to introduce my baby girl to her first apple picking - she got first dibs to fresh apple tasting.
We wanted to get to everything this time around, but with two feisty doggies and fussy 13 month old, we'll have to go back for the pumpkins.
