We went back to Jerry's orchard last weekend to pick out small pumpkins for the girls. Jerry was out in the apple orchard picking the last few apples from the trees to feed to the goats, and he told us we could take a few apples for ourselves, too. We picked a few Tolmen Sweet and they were very good, sweet with almost a pineapple note. Jerry said that variety is over 140 years old. Megan thinks now that she's a big girl and has 6 teeth, she can eat a whole apple herself.
She did very well to start with, but then she tried to eat the core, so I had to step in and take the apple away.
The girls had fun choosing their pumpkins. Megan, of course, wanted to carry her pumpkin around all by herself; we helped her choose a smaller pumpkin that was easier to manage.
Great teamwork by my girls! We ended up getting an Amelia sized pumpkin, a Megan sized pumpkin, and then two of the fancy pumpkin/gourds that we are going to paint if we ever find the time.
