Scenes from the Farm
This weekend, we visited Sharp’s Farm in scenic Howard County, Maryland. Like many of you this time of year, our weekends are filled with apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and hayrides.
Sharp’s is a working farm, hilly and beautiful. Things aren’t perfect, they’re real. You’re encouraged to explore at your own pace and there’s something so deeply warm and genuine about it, that it almost…almost makes me want to abandon city living for the country. Almost.
By now, you probably know I love anything new; anything we can ‘discover.’ This trip was full of discovery. We met and fed the gentlest goats in the world. We listened to pigs sleeping. We saw a cotton field for the first time and picked apart fallen cotton pods to see what was inside. And we discovered a mass of bones that our little scientist gathered up for her science teacher. Of course, we couldn’t walk away without a peck of apples for pie and a big ol’ massive-sized pumpkin. It was the perfect fall day.
Do you have any fall traditions you look forward to every year?
