A perfect fall day made for another great Sunday Assembly Pittsburgh Pumpkin Day. The parking lot was full of cars that brought excited adults and children ready to enjoy what Shenot Farm had to offer. The weather was partly cloudy with a one hundred percent chance of cider.
We indulged on freshly picked crispy apples as we rode the tractor down the dirt road to the pumpkin patch, passing skeletons and creepy scarecrows on the way. The tractor approached a vast field of pumpkins scattered about. Before we got to the pumpkins we entered the corn maze where we wandered aimlessly. After we made it out of the maze we walked around the seemingly endless field of pumpkins enjoying each other’s company.
Not all of us left with pumpkins, but we all left with smiles and sense of community. I personally left with fresh apple butter. My calendar is already marked for Pumpkin Day 2019.
