Pumpkin Picking

This past weekend, hubs and I decided to do some leaf peeping and winery exploring in the Shenandoah Mountains. The day started out glorious, but it turned overcast and chilly, which to me is the epitome of fall weather. It hasn't really been "fallish" at all this season, but I think it is finally here!

Along the way, we spotted a pumpkin patch on the side of the road. Having never actually picked a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch, we just HAD to stop.

I love pumpkins and gourds. They are so interesting in color and texture, not to mention pretty darn tasty! The patch itself was as cute as a button!

We decided on a small Turk's Cap and one of the large, green and white Cushaw squash. One thing that many people don't realize is that after being used for decoration, many of these squashes are very delicious!

After our haul, we caught a glimpse of sun peeking through the clouds onto the mountains. Imagine how spooky this graveyard is a night, but isn't it gorgeous during the day!

What a great fall day! Hope you are getting to enjoy fall wherever you are.
