It wouldn’t be fall without a trip to the pumpkin patch. We procrastinated till the end of the month and then the temperature spiked to over 100 degrees. Sweltering through the patch didn’t sound appealing, so we waited until Halloween Eve to carry out the tradition. Ironically, it was cold and gloomy and the exact opposite of the previous week. Moral of the story: Do not wait till the last week of October to visit the pumpkin patch.
