The Berlin Marsh Apple Orchard

Today I went shopping with my daughter and grandson.  The first place we went was a small privately owned apple orchard. 


They didn't have a huge selection and it wasn't one of those fancy farm markets, but they had very nice apples.  There were just a few varieties.  Last year the apple crop was so poor that it was nice to see that this was going to be a good year for the apple growers.  He had Wolf River apples there that aren't easy to find.  My mom used to get them for baking so I bought a peck of them.  Another kind they had were the Honey Crisp variety.  They are a wonderful eating apple.  They are crisp and sweet.  I also bought a pound of fresh cranberries.  My daughter got some onions and a bag of Cortland apples which are her favorite.

On this table were MacIntosh and Cortland apples.

Cranberries sold by the pound.

Next we went to lunch and then to a few stores that I don't normally get to.  I am a regular patron of the lumber yards and the Fleet Farm store.  Today we went to TJ Maxx, JoAnn fabrics, Target and the Outlet Mall.  It was a nice day.
