Who's ready for some fun fall festivities? The weather's getting cooler, so you might get to wear that comfy sweater you've been waiting to pull out of your closet and start making that hot apple cider you've been craving for the past month or so. And try to contain your excitement for one of the most enjoyable fall events -- pumpkin picking!
When we carve pumpkins, we generally use a knife, but they must do things a little differently in the South. For example, Tennessee resident and YouTuber Hickok45 carves his pumpkin with a Colt 1911 handgun. Why, you may ask? Because using anything else would just be plain silly.
There are tons of things we love about America. Our grand ole’ country cranks out hysterical, nightmare-inducing shows about mini pageant queens and we throw Big Bird into the political scene, for example. But our recent discovery tops them all-- ladies and gentlemen, we live in the presence of the most recent world champion pumpkin grower.
We were talking about it recently – the effect this summer’s drought across the country would have on pumpkin prices. It depends on where you live. Locally it turns out there’s plenty of pumpkins and the prices aren’t all that bad either.
Get out and enjoy this Fall Season! The leaves are changing, the smell of apple cider is in the air, and it’s finally sweater weather! I can’t get enough of this time of the year! Here are a few activities to help you enjoy the change of the season!
The word pumpkin comes from a Greek word meaning large melon. They’re believed to be native to North America, but they’re grown on every continent around the world except Antarctica.
I don’t know about you but I’m not one to sit at home no matter what the weather is like outside. Give me sunshine, rain, snow, whatever I’ll find something fun to do. If you’re like me and running out ideas of exciting events I’ve found a few you might be interested in!
