Miss C had her annual fall pumpkin patch field trip this year and the weather did not disappoint. Neither did the cows. There were 12 calves at the farm, but I didn’t get one photo!
Quote of the day, from one of the first graders, “Ewwww, I can see that cow’s privates!”
Also, the kids could not stop talking about the cow smell in the pasture. Call me crazy, but I love the smell of a farm. I grew up in the country and all the smells in the fields and the barns take me back. OK, OK so maybe I don’t love the scent of manure.
I want to give a little plug for McNeil’s produce stand on Highway 100 here in Nashville. It’s a perfect place to stop and pick up fall mums on the way back from Gentry’s Farm in Franklin. Thieves burned McNeil’s, which has been in business for 30 years, down to the ground this summer and they are up and running for fall with pumpkins and mums and produce.
