Farm Girls Gathered in The Fall

Farm Girls will be gathering soon, and I need to post on our fall gathering. Katy was our host, thank you for sharing all your culinary talents with us. Katy loves to try new recipes on us. We had a frittata, and assortments of muffins and breads with yummy jam to adorn our tasty morsels. On our agenda was a field trip to The Portland Nursery for apple tasting and of course to bring some apples home so we could make some fun things with the them, some of us will make applesauce, jams or pies. Do you have any special treats you like to make with apples.
Spiced Pumpkin Sippers. A perfect choice of drink for a fall morning.
Katy serving up her frittata, yummy!
Part of our gathering we share treasures. We share our apron stories and journal pages from our previous gathering.
Have you seen this magazine? I came upon it at Barnes and Noble, a perfect resource for us Farm Girls. Wouldn't you think?
Erin made us all aprons, I love mine.
Robin liking her new apron.
Katy was excited about hers, it had horses on it. She has horses on her farm.
As you can see these Farm Girls know how to have fun. Erin, Florence and Katy.
The Farm Girls were then off to The Portland Nursery to do some serious apple tasting.
There were many apples to try. My favorites are galas, jonagolds a mixture of jonathons and golden delicious and honey crisps. Do you have any favorites?
Erin, Katy and Robin tasting and judging all these apples. I don't remember how many there were but as you saw in the previous photo there were a lot.

They had many bins of apples of which you could buy them by the pound. This is Katy checking them out.
Not only did they have apples to sample, but there were vendors there selling apple related items, yes these farm girls did indulge and brought home some of the merchandise.
We Farm Girls had to taste the hard apple cider, since I was the designated driver my tasting was limited, I am a light weight drinker. In any case what I did taste was yummy.

These Farm Girls do know how to have fun exploring. We are The Mary Jane Farm Girls. Do you have a group women that you have adventures with?


  1. I've never seen apple tasting like this and think it's great! You guys look like you had a great time and now I need to find out just where this nursery is located! thanks for sharing ~

  2. I am so envious of your farm girl gathering. I haven't found a group "my age" around me. A local group invited me but they are all into baby raising. Your group looks like it has so much fun. I'll be waiting to see your next adventure.

  3. Hello~ It's always nice stopping by for a visit.
    I enjoy your posts and the eye candy you so generously share. I have to say this had me craving fall again.
    Was the apple tasting farm located in Battleground? I'd love to take my family next year.
    I like baking apple blossoms covered in caramel sauce...with Tilamook vanilla ice cream , of course.

    I hope you can stop by to see the Valentine surprises I've got in store. This week starting with...Pain au Chocolat. I'll put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea.

    Sweet wishes,


Thank you for your visit. I love seeing your comments!
