Pumpkin Farm Fun
We arrived just in time to see the farm owner instructing a crew of volunteers in arming a 3000lb counterweight trebuchet!Before he set it off, he had the kids gather around and delivered a short history and physics lesson. Then...
And off the kids ran to grab bits of shattered pumpkin...
...to feed to the pigs!
We wandered through a greenhouse full of declining tomatos:
And found a hay bale maze in the barn attic:
We took ride out to the pumpkin patch:
And got some choice seats for the ride back!
Before we left, we grabbed some crackers with pumpkin butter, took a ride:
Ran out of camera batteries (d'oh!), and took a stroll through the apple trees.
What a day!
