In our home, October heralds in the holiday season, full of family, good food and fun things to do and share!
Each October, we have traditionally gone to Pumpkin Patches or farms to pick out several large pumpkins to use for displays.
While living in Texas, we were blessed to be able to go to Henrietta's Apple Orchard. We would pick and eat apples, run from the psychotic roosters and play with the baby bunnies.
We would walk the grounds and marvel at all the plants that were grown around the orchard....some I still don't know the names of!
Before leaving for the day, we would go into the little shop and watch as they would clean and sort apples and prep them for sale and for canning goods.
The tiny shop had hand embroidered tea towels and an assortment of little sundries for sale.
It was always a good day and we really enjoyed it.
Now that we are in Louisiana, we need to find a new tradition....one that fits with living here.
There aren't any apple orchards around here but with all the festivals, I feel certain we will find SOMETHING to do!
Do any of you have a tradition to herald in the Fall?
