Isn't this a fun autumn bouquet? It's part of the big cluster of zinnias I picked- all for a dollar! My family went to a u-pick farm for my birthday yesterday where we got to pick pumpkins, and go on a hay ride, among other fun things. My favorite though was the field of zinnias. I felt like I had jumped into a painting!
U-pick farms can be an inexpensive, fun way to spend a Saturday, and right now, a lot of farms are hosting harvest festivals/ pumpkin patches. You end up with fresh produce, often cheaper than you can buy it at the stores and you have the pleasure of knowing that you are supporting a local family farm. Everybody wins!
