A Vsit To Jackson's Orchard

This past weekend we decided to take a trip to Jackson's Orchard. They are holding their annual Pumpkin Fest. When we arrived, we took a walk around. The orchard is decorated for Fall.

There were beautiful flowers and pumpkins of every color, shape and size at the main barn.

I don't think I have ever seen Impatiens Plants this big. They were so pretty.

This year they have added a new slide, "The Cider Slider", to the activities for kids.

They also have a petting zoo, pony rides, the inflatable jumping thing, face painting, pumpkin painting, and these tires to climb on.
But we had come to visit the Pumpkin Patch.

Michael got directions.......

We decided to walk instead of paying the $2 per
person to ride the Apple Wagon to the patch.

It is a nice little walk, through the apple orchard and past the corn maze.

The Corn Maze had seen it's better days. The corn stalks were laying on the ground and had been taken over by weeds.

The pumpkin patch was huge as usual with lots of pumpkins of all sizes to choose from.

I found the "Perfet Pumpkin", it was small but perfectly round and just he right color. Plus, it would have been easily carried from the patch.

Hartsul picked a rather large ugly pumpkin and Michael told him that if he wanted it he had to carry it from the patch to the checkout, which was a pretty good distance.

So off we went.......

After carrying it a few minutes, he decided rolling it would be easier.....

But, he was afraid the rocks along the path would damage his pumpkin. So it was back to carrying it.

He stopped a time or two to rest his arms and to get a better grip.

Finally, the barn was in sight.

We paid for the pumpkin and took it to the car.

After that we thought we deserved some apple cider and some fried apple pies.......
Yum, yum.
