We hit up Sauvie Island today-it’s not too terribly far from Portland, and has a bunch of farms/pumpkin patches.
We did the big pumpkin patch first. I got excited at the squash for sale
That’s not nearly all of it. So many types! And 45 cents a pound!
We found absurdly large cabbage
BIGGER than my head. The sign said they were for making sauerkraut. I’m pretty sure that’d make a lifetime supply.
The fiance climbed the haystack
Ran into some people I babysit for and got to hold a very cuddly baby. Cuddly babies are the best.
And we shared corn on the cob and sausage
(the ketchup only side? Clearly, the fiance’s half)
Then we drove around and saw pretty nature. And trailer parks.
We hit up a second farm where they had tons you could pick yourself
How pretty is it?
Also, far less children on sugar highs here. Win.
Hot peppers were high on the fiance’s list of wants
And I was excited to pick my own corn!
We were tempted with all the pumpkins, but I think they might rot if we buy one now, right?
So we settled for just one little one. And we got a caramel apple covered in heath
They dip them fresh, so the caramel made the chocolate all melty and amazing.
And we’ve got this stash of fantasticness at home now!
Do you go to pumpkin patches? I love ’em. I think maybe I’m too old for them now but seriously-caramel apples and cheap squash. Who can say no?
