One of our favorite places to visit is Wojick's. It's a family run farm with a good variety of apples. They, unlike Tougas Family Farm, spray pesticides liberally. I asked someone there if they spray their apples. She looked at me, dead pan, and said, "Yes. Make sure to wash your apples before eating them." I try not to buy produce that's sprayed, however, spraying means cheaper. I own soap and have access to water. We simply wash our apples prior to consuming. By cheaper, I mean 50% cheaper than other places that practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management) or follow organic practices. I'm all for organic, but when I'm putting up quart after quart of applesauce, I simply cannot afford organic. Now that I'm all on the defensive...
Wojick's has a tractor/wagon ride that was Silas' favorite. He would have liked to ride it all day long. There's also a corn maze. And they're open at night, in the dark. Spooky! We'll be heading there tomorrow night if the rain holds off.
I've also discovered a feature on my camera that "enhances" my pictures. I think I found my new love. Eli was there, I swear. He was just more interested in not being near the camera.

You love the enhancements, don't you? You should. My life seems so much prettier with them.
