We went out to a pumpkin patch in Woodinville yesterday. Most of the sunflowers nearby were brown and dried and bowed low to the ground, but there were a few hold outs. This one attracted a wasp. I'm afraid all the red winged black birds had eaten most of the dried sunflowers' seeds. For the first time since our fam started its tradition of pumpkin patch visits, we didn't end up getting a pumpkin. For years the rule was you could only choose a pumpkin you could carry from the field by yourself (which helped little people with bigger eyes than our budget in check). We stopped at Minea Farms Cider Mill and bought fresh pressed cider, spiced cider, Fuji apple butter that had just been made and was still warm, and blackberry honey in a bear shaped glass jar. What treats! Hope you are enjoying your fall Sunday! (Or your spring Sunday down there in the SoHem ;^) .)
