Apple Festival


So many apples and pears. So little time.
(40 apple varieties, 10 pear)




One sign claimed that an apple brushed your teeth better than toothpaste. This one suggests the aroma is as lovely as french perfume. Mmmmmm!




My little grand pumpkins painted some of these little grand pumpkins.

I wonder how long you could carry an apple around without attracting flies.

kailani said...

Can you really taste the difference between all those apples? I know I couldn't. I didn't even know there were 40 different kinds!

DesLily said...

Jeanette said...

The little painted pumpkins are so cute. Karmyn has some nice pictures too!

One of the things I miss most about not driving truck anymore is missing the apple season in Wenatchee. Thanks for spurring my memories.

I just decided what I'm having for lunch.

Fuji, here I come.

Beckie said...

Looks like fun!

Susie said...

It does seem like there are so many varieties of apples from which to choose. When I was in elementary school, I can only remember red and golden delicious. (or maybe that's all my parents could afford!)
Looks like you had a wonderful fall day :)

Hugs,

Amanda said...

I'm so glad you guys came! It was fun. And YES, they were super yummy apples! Comin back next year? :)

Christine said...

Looks like a fun and beautiful Fall day.

Fresh Apple and Pear tasting...Yum!
I wish we had orchards around us to pick and taste.
What a great name for an apple!

Kate said...

I love apples! I have just started buying those ready sliced ones in the produce section... you can get red or green and they stay fresh in the kids lunches as well as on platters (without having to dip them in lemon juice and that only works 1/2 the time for me as I always miss spots!)

Karmyn R said...

Next time I'm going to get in early so I can actually participate in the tasting!

Debbie said...

What lovely photos. Looks like a fun a event. And I love apples.

Masago said...

Very cool.

Tammy said...

What a fun apple festival! We love apples in our family, too!

Robinella said...

Washington apples. I miss living in WA. That looks like a good time was had by all.

my4kids said...

ooh I do miss the fresher apples....
We don't have apples growing here.
I can tell the difference in apples!

Connie said...

Looks like you had a really fun day. I just did a post a week back about how many types of apples are out there to buy....I think I would be exhausted by the time I got down all the names from the tasting.

Great pictures.

Take care,
Connie

Being from apple country we do see a lot of apples. But 40 is many! Not sure you can clean your teeth with them though... They still have fructose in them...

Beccy said...

Looks like a fun weekend. You start your halloween celebrations way earlier than us.

Robin said...

What a GREAT way to sample the different varieties...but after 40 different bites, I DO wonder if you could tell a difference.

Mert said...

That looks loverly! I can imagine not wanting to eat an apple for while after though :D

Peter said...

What a great theme for a festival, fresh from the trees there's nothing better than fruit of any kind.

Tiggerlane said...

I love apples - I need to eat them more often! It is definitely apple pie time, too.

Your post is making me drool.

The Ramblin Irishman said...

What a neat event to attend. I wonder how something like that would work in Idaho with Potatoes? It would be interesting to see if anyone could tell the difference in potatoes. Have a nice day.

bermudabluez said...

Apple Fests are a great way to celebrate Fall! Your little ones made some great looking pumpkins!

Devon said...

Ode de Apple, I love them!

judypatooote said...

Fall is my favorite time of year, and one reason is the trip to the apple orchard...with my daughter and grand kids....it is so much fun walking the orchard and eating to make sure you pick the right apple....we always get a half bushel, and probably eat a peck...LOL....you sure do have a lot of little pumpkins....they look real cute....judy

Claudia said...

all that I keep seeing is the scene from GoodWill Hunting in which Damon says, "How ya like dem apples?"

theotherbear said...

I love pink ladies. The apples, that is, not pink ladies in general.

LIBSMOM said...

What lovely fall photos! I really need to get out of Florida. I'm so jealous!

Debs said...

Great pics! I bet the smell was yummy. I love apples. :D

We have a lovely orchard right by our house, but seeing all these varieties makes me miss my years in Kennewick. Grover's Orchard back on the hill behind my house made the best cider in the world!
