Fall is our favorite season, so a few weeks ago, on the first cool weekend of October, we headed out to celebrate at Soergel Orchards‘ pumpkin patch!
My family has many fall traditions, and one of our favorite activities is bundling up and heading out to make memories at the pumpkin patch each year.
We usually have apple cider and/or donuts in hand as we take a hayride to the pumpkin patch, so that we can pick our favorite pumpkins and have them back home to carve or decorate by the time evening comes.
We were thrilled to find that Soergel Orchards offered all that and more – including apple orchard picking, a corn stalk maze and pumpkin painting. We only wish that we had more time to participate in it all, especially since I’m moving a little slower than usual these days.
We loved spending the day at the pumpkin patch and tried to limit ourselves to only 10 gourds and pumpkins this year, although I wholeheartedly believe that you can never have too many pumpkins.
We are now counting down the days until Halloween – only 10 more days to go!
