Apples, Butters , And Pumpkins....

 We went to the orchard last year and I am wanting to go back today. We drove by a couple times this year and honestly I didn't see many apples on the trees. These photos are from last year.
 All these yummy butters and honey, sure look good. I have had apple  and pumpkin butters. Never any cherry butter. That might be worth trying once.
I do not need any more pumpkins.I love seeing piles of gourds and pumpkins.Nothing sadder than seeing a pumpkin lying out in the snow at winter. I think I will take the seeds out of the ones I have. Then I can chop the rest up for the compost pile. Until then they are decorations for autumn. Dinner is in the crock pot and I am almost ready for running into town. xo


  1. You are an early girl like me!
    Your images are yummy, and a reflection of perfect Autumn country charm.

    Safe travels to town, Susie.
    Have a great day!

  2. It was not a good year for local apples here. Orchards are "importing" apples from other states.

    I LOVE both apple butter and pumpkin butter!

    Have a good Tuesday!

  3. I love all three of those! :) Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. I love the apple butter but I've never tried cherry butter.. It looks yummy..Hugs, Susie

  5. I roll my pumpkins into the woods for the deer. It is funny watching them get smaller and smaller.
    I bought local apples at the grocery today and they were so small. I should have gone to the orchard but maybe they would be small as well.

  6. Like Debby I crack our pumpkins and put them up on our burn pile for the deer. Some years we grow pumpkins up there because of it.

  7. Apple butter is one of jy very FAVORITE foods.
    Yum! Yum!

  8. I never thought of composting pumpkins but it is a great way to use them after the holidays. Feeding them to the deer, like some of the commenters said, sounds like a good idea too. I might have to give that a try with the herd that hangs around here in the winter.
