Pumpkins!! All the kids got to choose their very own sugar pie pumpkin to take home as a token of their adventures at Walter's Fruit Ranch. Picking just the right pumpkin required a lot of searching. Each little one found the one that was just right for them! What fun memories they'll have.
(The tractor ride)
Farmer Danny took us on a tractor ride through the apple trees. He showed us the most popular apples in the world--the Red Delicious (also known as King Red) and the Golden Delicious. We learned how the blossoms were pollinated by bees and flying bugs and how the apples grow. He explained how the trees go dormant in the winter (tap a nap) and how they wake up in the spring. He showed us the best way to pick an apple from the branch and let us get our very own apples. They were delicious.
