gonna eat a lot of peaches. Or rather, pumpkins and corn and apples and squash because that’s what we’ve got in Seattle right now.
But really, I have been thinking a lot lately about moving to country. I think it’s a combination of
- the fact that it’s truly fall here in Seattle now
- I’ve been doing all this organic research and thinking about where our food comes from (why not grow/raise it myself on my own farm?)
- Spending time out in a beautiful state park in Enumclaw last weekend for Jason’s half-ironman (more on that, I promise)
- Feeling like the world is going to hell in a hand basket and maybe, just maybe, us city folk can escape to the country and start a new life . . .
All this being said, it was perfect timing for us to go out to Snohomish to the pumpkin patch this weekend.
First, I must stand corrected. The Farm at Swan’s Trail was no pumpkin patch, folks. This was a pumpkin patch PLUS lots of farm animals, kittens, a corn maze, orchard, big red barn, tractor hay rides, playground, food, etc. You know me, even if I wasn’t into being a farmer right now, if there are large furry animals and kittens there, I’M SOLD.
While we were there I started dreaming of opening a bed and breakfast on a little farm some day, raising mini-cattle, picking my own apples, sitting on my wraparound porch drinking a pumpkin spice latte, letting Lizzie run free . . . you get the idea.
Doesn’t it sound wonderful?
It is just a dream at the moment. But we still had a ton of fun on Saturday!

Thanks, Jessica, for suggesting this great adventure!
