Indianan Apple Adventure

by

On Saturday afternoon we made a somewhat spur of the moment decision to leave the city and pick some apples in Hobart, IN.  Two years ago, we ventured to County Line Orchard.  That is where we returned.  The orchard extravaganza had changed significantly in two years.  The gigantic parking lot had been paved over, the kiddie farm was greatly expanded, and they had built a new barn to be used for events with seating for 1,200 people.  The tractor rides remained the same, and the apples are still delicious.

When we arrived, Basil enjoyed a tasty, milky meal, and we ran into our neighbors.

and found ourselves deep within the orchard.

The solid food eaters in our trio tasted Honey-Crisp, McIntosh, Gala, Jonagold, Jonathon, and Golden Delicious.  Some of the apples were decidedly not ready yet, but the Gala were absolutely delicious and singly populated our returning harvest.

After picking, we enjoyed apple donuts and Basil had one more milky meal before we left.  He spit all of it out on the way home, but we’re pretty sure he still liked the apple orchard.

    It’s most probably too late for more apple picking now, but my boss recommends Radke Orchard if you like something quaint and intimate, which I guess you just might!
