Well, we did it! We grew a pumpkin patch big enough to share and hosted a pickin!
It was hot as blue blazes and we had some stiff competition for attendance (homecomings, Eco-fest, band competitions…) but it was such a lovely day despite of it all! I think everyone who was able to come, really enjoyed the mellowness of it all – it was slow and gentle and peaceful (at least compared to must Pumpkin Patch experiences…) and restorative.
Peaceful is a word that we hear a lot about our little farmstead. Visitors always remark on how peaceful and peace-filled Preservation Acres is. And they are right. It really is a place that seems to be filled with light and peace, a place where when you arrive, you feel time slow down just a bit, where you can exhale a bit if your harried hurriedness and just enjoy being. It is one of the things I liked right away about this place. One of the things I am so grateful that we are able to share.
‘Till next year’s picken!
