BJ Reece Apple Orchard

After we left the festival we decided to take the boys to pick some apples.  They love to pick blueberries, so we thought that this would be fun too.  Davy just finished an apple lesson in school, Johnny Appleseed, so perfect timing.  There were quite a few different orchards that we could choose from, BJ’s seemed to have the largest crowd.  We figured if everyone else wanted to go there, then we should too.

Now, I have heard of a lot of things, but what I have never heard of is fried pies.  Andy is our pie eater in the family and his eyes were huge.  When we got up to the counter, they had every kind of pie imaginable.  Apple, cherry, chocolate, cream cheese, peach, pecan, etc.  Yum!  Of course we had to sample a few of them.

And they are off into the orchard to find us some trees that are full of apples…

What!!!  How dare you throw apples at mama!!!  Silly boys…

The apples all over the ground is what surprised me the most.  What a waste.  Matty liked to pick them up and bite into them, then he would throw it down and pick up another…  No stopping the bear….

What did we do with all of our apples you ask???  We brought them home, back to Florida, and made apple jelly.  Yum!
