Back in September we had one weekend available after the start of apple season so we decided we better go get some apples before it was too late! We really liked Empire apples in the past but knew those weren't ripe so we figured we would try a new orchard. We visited More Than Delicious Orchard and discovered it wasn't that far from our house! Normally we drive about 35-40 minutes to get to orchards-this one was on the other side of McHenry. This orchard was small but had quite a few varieties. They only were letting people pick one bag of apples and the apples were on the smaller side but they were quite delicious! I think our favorite apple and the one that we picked the most of were the Lustre Elstar. They were very sweet and crisp. It's always nice to discover new types of apples! I can't even remember the other types of apples we picked.
It didn't take us long to pick apples so I didn't get many pictures. The kids were tired and not in the best of moods. There were also tons of bees in the orchard which freaked Natalie out as she always seemed to have a half eaten apple in her hand. Here are the few pictures I got of that day.
