Pickin’ Me Some Pumpkins

It is that time of year where the brisk wind and crunching leaves makes us all want to take a trip to the pumpkin farm. As you arrive on that dusty gravel road and park, all those feelings of seasons’ past come rushing back to you. The sound of children laughing and faint country music travel ever so slightly through your loosely knitted cap. You can smell the scent of freshly grilled kernel corn in the air and warm apple cinnamon donuts. The farm is a sight to see with the rich reds,  yellows, and oranges covering the trees in small clusters while some slowly twirl to the grass before the bitter,deadening winter. As you walk through the tall, rustling cornstalk entryway and pay admission you are greeted by cheery workers in festive Fall clothing. You take a minute, breathe in the fresh air, and embrace that you are finally back your Autumn home, the pumpkin patch.
