On Saturday between soccer games the children and I headed up to Elijay to pick apples. This is a family tradition. Harris did not come because like your typical teenager he was still sleeping and Winston was on a hiking trip at the Gorge where he slept outside under the stars in a hammock. We picked apples, drank apple cider, and brought plenty back to make apple pies and apple sauce. Let Fall begin!
In Ellijay and Dawsonville you will find along the roadside pumpkin farms, apple farms, boiled peanuts, opportunities to buy fresh vegetables.
