Hey folks, it's that time of year again!
This event is the best place I've found to taste the most varieties of apples and pears all at the same time. You can buy most of the varieties by the pound too. There's also good fresh-pressed cider and other food stuff for sale, cooking demos, a hopping kids area, live music, etc.
I provided the link below with the details. Of course, the Portland Nursery hopes that you'll buy stuff while you are there, but going there and tasting the fruit and the kids area and the popcorn and the music, etc. are all free. It's Fri, Sat., Sun. this weekend (8th, 9th, 10th) and next (15th, 16th and 17th).
Ya know, I hear that if you eat 30 apples that you can keep doctors away for a whole month! ;o)
