I'll miss my beloved Summer tomatoes, but there's a plethora of Fall produce to scoop up at the store. Better yet, celebrate Autumn by taking day trips to pick-your-own orchards where you can spend the day outside selecting your own goodies. Apple orchards and pumpkin patches are easiest to come by, but depending on where you live, there may be corn mazes that allow you to wander among the corn rows.
Find apple orchards in your area that invite you to pick your own by scouring the list on PickYourOwn.org and pick a pumpkin patch by checking out Pumpkinpatchesandmore.org. Be aware: this season might be busier than most. Kathy McKay, spokeswoman for the North American Farmers' Direct Marketing Association explained, "Because of the whole staycation-daycation thing, a lot of our members are saying business has been good."
Have you ever visited a place where you could pick your own?
