Leaf Peeping

October 16, 2011

We went peeping of a different sort this weekend.  We left the chickens with our faithful babysitter and were off to the Berkshires of Massachusetts.  Wonderful fall foliage was a plenty.  Apple picking, a trip to Norman Rockwell’s Stockbridge and Mount Greylock were on the agenda.   Fall in New England is nothing short of spectacular.

The chickens received an excellent report from the babysitter.  They were happy to have us return.  This week, as we put the apples to good use making apples pies, bread and crisp, the chickens are going to love eating the fresh apple cores and skins.

  1. Hi From Beyond My Kitchen Window. Yes, they are "electric" orange! You should take that ride. The leaves are peaking a little to the East of the Berkshires this week 🙂

    Thank you Heidi, you are so sweet.

  2. LOVE the fall pictures! It's my favorite time of the year. It's the one of the things I miss the most from our few years living in Colorado – they have a definite fall that we don't really experience here in central Texas. Every year for the five years that we lived in Colorado we went to the Denver Botanical Gardens at Chatfield's huge Pumpkin Festival. I just LOVED picking out pumpkins right out of the field every year!
