31 Days of Halloween: Day 2, Pumpkin Patch and Apples

One of my favorite activities to do during the fall is to go apple picking. There’s nothing better than picking fresh apples from your local orchard during the cool autumn weather. My girlfriend and I decided to head to a place down south called, Minnesota Harvest Apple Orchard. Looking at the reviews it seemed like an awesome place to go, plus the idea of Apple Pizza sounded more than intriguing.

We arrived to Minnesota Harvest a bit later into the afternoon. We were fortunate enough to have gone on a Friday so there were were very few people around to crowd the area. My girlfriend and I both ate light to save room for the food there. Unfortunately though, they were already closing up the kitchen and we did not get a chance to try out their Apple Pizza. We instead bought a plastic bag to fill up some apples from the orchard


We wandered around the orchard a bit, but had a very difficult time navigating it. The Apple Orchards were divided up into numbered sections but it was not clearly marked what each type of apples the sections were. However, taking a quick bite out of the apples helped us resolve both our hunger issue and identifying what apples we wanted. Despite the fact it was October we still managed to gather a hull of perfectly delicious apples.

After we had filled our apple bag we went off to explore other activities offered at the orchard. We first went off to their sunflower maze to get lost. When we got there, the maze’s flowers had withered away. Needless to say, the maze was not hard to navigate through. I also loved how the withered maze during dusk added to a creepiness feel. We went to go pick out some pumpkins from their pumpkin patch before heading off to the cities.


On our way back we stopped by this arcade place located in Jordan called Zap Arcade. It felt great to go back to an old school arcade place in Minnesota. For $5 to get unlimited access to the games it felt like it was money well spent. We ended our adventure by eating at a place called J’Panime Cafe, were we feasted our a delectable bowl of Seafood Ramen and Boba tea.
