Time to Pick Apples

by Rebekahcooked up on November 3, 2011

This past weekend Dave and I headed out to Albeke Farm in Oregon City with some friends to pick our own apples.

It was so nice to get out of the city and spend some time on a farm. This post will mostly be photos of our trip.

We couldn’t believe how dark the soil was.

Fall decor was also on sale, along with tons of produce.

Colorful corn!

I don’t know what it was, but everything seemed so bright and beautiful out there.

It’s almost time to pick the Concord grapes.

Wine Country Adventure! The Eola-Amity Hills AVA

Last weekend Dave and I took a romantic little day trip down to wine country. Dundee is frequently the place we go on the way out of Portland, but this time we headed a little further south to the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, which is just west of Salem. It’s kind of pretty. Only mildly overwhelmingly […]
