{peach pickin’ in paonia}

13 Sep

i totally fell in love… with this great little town… paonia.  i actually considered moving there before i moved to my little neck of the mountains… but i hadn’t yet visited and i’m super glad i had the opportunity to this week! i had heard that there were farms up in paonia where you could pick your own produce for a nominal fee… and obviously – i was all over that!

the season for peaches is almost over, but orchard valley farms still had plenty of trees to harvest from! i had never done anything like this, it was quite the experience! ❤


i left my camera at home, because this was sort of an impromptu trip… but i had the trusty iphone.


hehehee {not a real person, but totally fooled me!} 😛


entrance to the garden and grove… {those are “peach pickers”}


peach trees galore!


ladder to pick the really big ones at the top!


like this! 😀


sipping wine and picking peaches… what a day!



pumpkins!  {no pickin’ pumpkins, though!}


no picking wine grapes either… but the merlot/cabernet blend from black ridge winery was just wonderful!


then i spotted this door on the way out… 🙂

enjoy the weekend!
