Fall Tradition

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tim @ 8:50 pm

Iowa migrant workers visit Georgia

In keeping with our fall tradition, we picked apples in Ellijay, GA and brought home two pecks of Mutsu and Rome Delicious.  At only $12 per peck, $5 orchard entry fee per person (Centenarians and under 4 weeks free), $3 per soda, and $10 hay rides, they were practically giving away the apples.  After adding gas expenses, those apples were only about $3 each.  We wanted to go Blueberry picking as well, but unfortunately the bank loan didn’t come through in time.  Luckily, we’re eligible for a stimulus grant (saving 5 jobs – see picture above).  The next time I need to max the credit cards, I’ll just take the kids to an Atlanta Braves game or buy some popcorn at the movie theatre.
