A few weeks ago we headed across the mighty Mississippi River to Illinois for some apple picking (and pumpkin sitting). It was a beautiful day, but hot for October, in the mid 80's.
We went to one of the huge farms. So big they have to cart customers out to the fields in wagons. It was towards the end of apple season, so there were only 2 varieties to choose from - Golden Delicious and Red Rome. Both were picked and eaten, and they were yummy.
You can also pick your own pumpkin out of the field. We chose not to get pumpkins on this day. But the kids did like checking out the huge pumpkins that were on display.
