National Pumpkin Day
happened while LB and I were on vacation.
After leaving Amicalola Falls State Park, we intended to head toward the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Burt’s Pumpkin Farm
National Pumpkin Day!
according to NationalDayCalendar.com
Burt’s Pumpkin Farm was complete with all the pumpkins you could imagine, wheelbarrows to gather them for easy commute to the checkout, a store with jams, jellies, butters, and breads/cakes.
There is something about pumpkin that Americans love and it probably has more to do with the way it makes us feel. Pumpkin is a seasonal food that brings with it the nostalgia of the events that are associated with fall. Such things as Halloween, Thanksgiving, gathering with family and friends.
Pumpkin is used in various autumn decorations, recipes, and other events (pumpkin chunkin’, etc). Pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day is an American (Richard) favorite. Although by the time we have had the opportunity to dollop a slice with cool whip, we have already carved Jack-O-Lanterns,(two of my personal favorites) and we have nearly overindulged in several PSLs.LB and I enjoyed a first, as we took time out of our day to enjoy a pumpkin farm on National Pumpkin Day.
