We Call Her "Crazy"

Yesterday we almost had a feathered stow-away as we were packing for our quick trip down to Medina, TX to pick up the teenage girls from summer camp. As much fun as she would have been on our Thelma and Louise excursion, we put her out. The shocked and disappointed expression on her little chicken face would break your heart.

  2. i've been there....it was in day trips out of dallas...and we found a miniture apple tree place that had so many apple products!!!! i wish i could tell you the name.
    Medina, Texas

    This small town is a giant in the world of apples, known for its dwarf apple trees that produce full-sized fruit. You'll find apple varieties ranging from Crispin to Jonagold in these orchards.

    Attractions:

    Love Creek Orchards. From April through October, these orchards are open to the public by guided tour only; call to set up a tour time. Visit www.lovecreekorchards.com.

    The Cider Mill and Country Store. Located downtown on Main Street, this shop sells Love Creek apples from June through November as well as apple products year around. Look for apple butter, sauces, vinegars, jellies, syrups, pies, and even apple ice cream. If you're ready to start your own orchard but don't have the room, you can buy the "patio apple orchard," a dwarf tree grown in a trellis in a wooden planter.

  3. Rats, Sandy! Wish I'd known - I'd love some small apple trees here on the farm. The girls will probably be going to camp again next summer, so maybe I'll get another chance to pick some up. Also will be going to Boerne this fall, so perhaps a side trip to Medina???? We'll see...
