Fun Fall To-Do: Go Pick Your Own Produce

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 and pick a pumpkin patch by checking out 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?

I want to go apple picking so bad! I went forever ago and I remember having all of these delicious apples that lasted weeks. Oh they were so good. I'm thinking of organizing an event with my coworkers. That'd be fun.

we go apple picking just about every fall now. It's fun and the apples are delicious. We will just sporadically pick a beautiful cool sunny fall day and head about a half hour east of where we live. There are a bunch of farms there. It's a nice thing to do as a family - wheather it's just my fiance and me, or we bring more people.

I've been apple picking several times, and picked pears, plums, and nectarines earlier this summer. I also visited a corn maze and though we didn't solve it, it was fun.

We always go to a pick-your-own orchard to get apples in the fall and I make pies and applesauce with them. We also pick-our-own produce at my in-laws' farm because they have tons of blackberries, tomatoes, pumpkins, squash, corn, etc. for us. Bonus: it's free!

Went apple picking a few years ago. It was a lot of fun but got tired of apple pie, baked apples, apple cobbler, apple sauce, apple cookies...
