Cider Sunday Part 4 - Lattin's

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Hopefully I'm not boring you all with this past weekend's events. After we left the "Cider Sunday" festivities at Tumwater Falls Park we decided to go over to Lattin's Country Cider Mill, a local farm where you can pet goats, pick your pumpkin out of a huge patch, buy fresh pies and jams, & much much more. We had our seven year old with us that day and she really wanted a pumpkin. Even though it's still pretty early and we explained that if she carved it now she'd end up with a moldy orange glob by Halloween she was still sure she wanted one. My wife said okay knowing that at the very least she would end up with some pumpkin seeds to bake. Besides getting the pumpkin our daughter had her face painted and fed a number of the animals there. It really is a wonderful place for the family to go. I'll be posting more on Lattin's tomorrow. The pumpkin was by no means the only reason we went there. Please stay tuned.

    It looks nice, welcoming and a place to find nice products.

  4. There is some hope, I suppose, that all the pumpkins will sell. It is a cash crop for some farmers here. Just like growing tobacco used to be but tobacco is a lot more work than growing pumpkins or strawberries.

    A really lovely photo, Don! Just super with those wonderful colors...

    And what a neat place for a kid (well, adults, too!)...face painting and goat petting...that's wonderful. I can surely see why you will go back there.

    Shall look forward to more photos!

    It looks like a really fun place and very colorful, too. Our local historic farm has a pumpkin patch again this year. I'll have to head over and take some shots. Can't believe it's already October! By the way, I always enjoy your visits to my blog...and I enjoy seeing yours!

  10. Thanks everyone. I truly appreciate all of your kind comments. Sorry I'm running a bit short on time today so I'll leave it at that. ;-)
