It's a beautiful fall day here is Southwestern Ohio.
Earlier in the week, we had talked about going for a hike today, but then toward the end of the week decided to go to the pumpkin farm instead.
Iron's Fruit Farm was founded in 1936, according to their website, and they have a big fall festival every year in October.
They used to be a fruit farm, but I'm not sure how much fruit they grow any more. They seem to have let the farm and fruit orchards go, but we still enjoy the hayride and corn maze.
Other people must too, as there are always lines of cars waiting to get in.
The corn maze had a western theme this year and it took us an hour to work our way through the twists, turns and dead ends.
The tips of the corn looked pretty against the brilliant blue sky.
Here and there were vines wrapped around the corn with pretty purple flowers.
After the maze, we walked through the overgrown pumpkin patch.
Dear son picked out a HUGE gourd. He and hubby thought it would be funny to put Mr. Potato Head features on it.
We said a quick hello to some of the animals. This ole mule was quite sweet. I bet she would have loved an apple, but they had signs asking people not to feed her.
We each got a decadent treat in the bakery and headed home.
I hope those of you in the midst of hurricane's path stay safe. My mom and dad in NC are without power now.
Until next time,
