Three-year-old Maria Robbins of Flat Rock selects just the right pumpkin from the pick-your-own pumpkin patch at Plymouth Orchards in Plymouth for the perfect pumpkin Thursday morning. The popular pick-your-own apples activity has been suspended for the season, since there are no apples on the trees at Plymouth Orchards this season. The early spring, followed by freezing weather wiped out the local apple crop. Plymouth Orchards has had to purchase apples from across the state to produce apple cider, which is selling for $10-a-gallon this year.
