    Hello,

    I'd like to get out of the city one of these October weekends to enjoy the leaves, pick some apples and have a picnic with some friends. Can anyone recommend a scenic apple-picking place, or barring that a really nice forest preserve, within 30 minutes of the city limits?

    Thanks

    I have been picking my neighbor's apples that are on our side of the fence. :D I have no clue what variety as the house has changed owners many times. The apples are are green with redblush small in size and medium tart. Made two yummy pies...
