Fall has Fallen

Pumpkin Patch at Butler's Orchard

Pumpkin Patch at Butler's Orchard

It is beginning to look a lot like fall.  You can hear the screams at the football on TV, smell the leaves a changing (well, not really in the city, but we can pretend), and feel the cool, recently cold, breeze flowing through the air.  This is my favorite time of the year.  Time to get outside, and enjoy the October festivities.

Recently I joined Kareem, G and Spud for a trip up to Maryland, and out into the country.  We knew we wanted apples, and maybe pumpkins, so Butler’s Orchard was the perfect choice.  The website said they had an October Festival.  And I mean, what could be cooler!?  Well, turns out a lot.  The ‘festival’ was definitely not for the 20 somthings crowd, and honestly, didn’t look like the kids were even having much fun…

So we ended up bypassing the festival and headed straight to the orchards.  Since apple season is pretty much over, it took some real hunting to find the good apples.  But we did, as well as the raspberry patch, and of course some pumpkins.  I purchased a huge 17 pounder.

Next step, crave the round thing!  Should I go evil or goofy?

    Evil or goofy? You know that Jeff will go evil, that is a given! So I say go goofy, but either way we want to scare the squirrels away!

    We carved pumkins at my parent’s house this weekend and mine had a pig snout! It was awesome!

    I was thinking I might try to go for the drunk pumpkin….have a few beer cans laying around it. Not sure yet…

    I went to Butler’s, and loved it. Fight me Doug Hay.

    I miss you.

    Marky, I loved it too, just maybe not so much the “festival”…

    Oh man do I miss you too…
