I'm so glad that we were able to spend time earlier this week outside playing and riding our bikes. The weather was so gorgeous and it felt fantastic being in the fresh cool air. I love autumn! There is something invigorating about chillier temperatures and colorful falling leaves.
Unfortunately our good weather was short lived. Yesterday the remnants of the hurricane flew into our area, leaving us with torrential downpours and windy conditions. Rain, leaves and nuts were all falling at impressive rates. The rest of the weekend weather is forecast to be equally as miserable. It looks like we'll be camping out and playing inside (again) this weekend.
Hopefully the rain will break long enough for us to go to the pumpkin patch tonight. I joined the strawberry and pumpkin CSA last Spring through our local farm. Each week we received 10 pounds of strawberries when they were in season. Our plan also includes 100 pounds of pumpkins, which are ready for harvesting.
In order to comply with social distancing, the farm has opened appointment slots for pumpkin picking. Because we are in the CSA, we were provided the first slots. Rain or shine, we are heading to the pumpkin patch to claim our 100 pounds of pumpkins.
I'm really looking forward to a quasi-traditional outing during these unconventional times!
