Today On The Mississippi – September 24

It looks to be a beautiful day on tap with the high in the low 70s.  Though they are saying we could get storms. Below is actually the MOON rising last night.  My camera made the sky a little lighter than the sky actually was, but thought I’d share regardless.  We have been seeing some beautiful night skies over the river.

Lovely sunrise.

This last weekend we got to spend a little time with our kids on Sunday morning. We didn’t do Saturday because they were hanging with some friends of theirs so we decided to meet Sunday morning at a little farm, or Orchard, both actually… to pick raspberries and veggies. Perhaps even a few apples.

Above is my oldest daughter and grandson.

I didn’t get any raspberries, but they got a few. The we went on to look at all of the pumpkins growing. Lots of signs by several of the patches saying they weren’t ripe yet.

There were some pretty large ones out there.

We didn’t pick out pumpkins because it was still a bit early for that.

We did pick brussel sprouts, green bell peppers, tomatoes, green beans and Jalapeno peppers.  They also had some tiny pears that were very tasty, so we got a bag of those.

They had all sort of things out there to pick, carrots, zucchini, strawberries, squash, herbs.  Of course you needed to come at the right time.  But it was fun. Normally we go to other more commercial orchards and they have playgrounds, shops and just a ton of stuff to do, very commercial.  But it was nice to go out to a beautiful area and just be able to pick all sorts of things.

After hitting Target to get a few more things with the kids, we went to their house and took care of our cats, then we left the kids and we went back up to our area and our RV.  On the way we pass 101 Market in Otsego, which I really like a lot. They have been setting up for their Fall Festival, which I had no idea was so big and awesome! The kids weren’t with us, but they would have enjoyed it.

Lots of very nice Halloween and Fall decorations to purchase.  And of course, Pumpkins!!! So clean and spacious, the parking lot was full and people parked down the road, still it didn’t seem overly crowded. Nice place!
