Fall is my favorite time of year – changing leaves, cooler temperatures, crisp air, pumpkin patches and apple cider. Unfortunately, living in the desert does not expose me to these elements by just stepping out into my backyard – the way it did living in the Northwest. So, the three T’s decided to hop in the truck this weekend in search of the great Fall adventure. Although we didn’t find the changing leaves and crisp air this time, we did find an enormous pumpkin patch and apple orchard – Apple Annie’s in Willcox, AZ (1 hr 15 mins East of Tucson). At the pumpkin patch, they also grow various types of peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, squash and sunflowers. We had a great time. I’ve never seen a larger pumpkin patch, even at my old favorite Fall tradition – Greenbluff in Spokane. We picked two huge pumpkins (cut them right off the vine ourselves), ate a huge slice of apple pie covered with vanilla ice cream and sampled apple cider. Yes, Fall has arrived indeed.
