Pumpkin Picking -- October 20, 2007

We went to Half Moon Bay today to get a pumpkin. Traffic was heavy going down One, but far heavier on 92. We went to the 4-Cs patch this year instead of Lemos'. I took the photo today. A little bit of the traffic is visible in the background. We found a great pumpkin for $8.00 and got to see a litter of two-week-old Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs. They were unspeakably cute. The weather was clear and sunny, which was good for business. I didn't want to try to get back into the traffic heading towards Half Moon Bay, so we went up 92. Traffic was backed up across the reservoir.

Report from the other end of the continent: We took Route 5 in Vermont. Two small to mid-sized pumpkins for $1.75 each. Little traffic. Beautiful weather, which people hereabouts do not take for granted and accept as a gift for which we are unworthy. Cows and horses along the roadside meadows don't seem to notice how nice it is. Ungrateful wretches.

Also, great stick to your ribs food at a 1920s era diner (Not a 1920s themed diner, a dining car from the 1920s). Too full for the pie, unfortunately. Next time, maybe.

Wonder how many other folks went in search of a pumpkin this weekend?
