One of my favourite places to visit in the fall is Davison Orchards. The enormous displays of squash, gourds, apples, and other produce make my autumn loving heart so happy.
Last year Little Forager was not even one year old, and barely standing so as much as he loved the tractor ride and seeing the sights there was a whole lot that he couldn't really experience. This year he made full use of the playground areas, and had so much fun hunting for the perfect pumpkin.
There is so much here to explore, and not to mention that Vernon, BC is a great town to visit. I always make sure I go home with some of their unpasteurized apple juice, and at least one box of apples. On their last day of the season they have some great deals of the gift and food items in their store. You can also fit as many pumpkins in one shopping cart as you can and take them home for a flat rate of $20. I make sure to cram my cart with as many sugar and ghost pumpkins as possible and bake with them all winter.
Life has been flying by for us this fall. I love this time of year, but I was having a hard time getting into the feel of it this time. After our smokey summer, I was just starting to feel like we were able to enjoy the warmer weather, and then suddenly it was autumn! Now that we've done this orchard visit, and have had our Thanksgiving dinner and everything I am getting into the spirit of the season much more! Time to make something with all the apples I brought home!
