Places to Go - Autumn at Great Country Farms (Bluemont, VA)

(It's the worst group picture ever, but at least we have a group picture)

I've posted about Great Country Farms quite a few times (click here to view past posts), mostly regarding our visits in the summer and spring. But GCF also makes for a great day trip in autumn - no mosquitoes or bees, cooler weather, and hayrides to wonderful pick-your-own fall crops. A few weeks ago we picked swiss chard and kale and in October you can pick pumpkins off the vine. The playgrounds keep getting bigger and bigger - they now have a "castle" with slides and several haystacks for running, jumping, and climbing (or sneezing). The grounds are open daily from 10am to 5 pm through Sunday, November 27th (closed on Thanksgiving day). I can't think of a better way to celebrate the end of the season (esp. since relatively warm weather is predicted through the weekend). Click here for more info.


*In the Make - Lovely pics and interviews with all sorts of artist equals lots of inspiration. I can't stop browsing.

*New pics up on my other blog, Because It Is a Holiday.

*A gorgeous set of photos.



Picking kale confused T somewhat. He kept carrying his bag by the wrong end.


Everybody loved the play castle with slides.


She's actually six years old. Wow. Where do the years go?
