Most of Long Island has neighborhoods where the homes are close together. So close that I hear Ethel behind me talking on the phone…lol. But out there it is so different. The homes have acres of property and it is truly just serene. Along with that peacefulness comes REALLY, REALLY high priced homes and taxes that are as much as some people’s yearly salary!! Thankfully we get to enjoy going out there this time of year for apple picking and pumpkin picking. Not sure we will be moving there anytime soon : )
Needless to day, here are some pictures from our latest trips to the apple and pumpkin farms!!
This is the closest Christopher will ever get to milking a cow!!
There were hayrides and tractor rides as well as wooden play structures for the kids to enjoy.
At the pumpkin farm, Christopher got to walk a goat! He was so excited.
They even had potato sac races……
There were very few pumpkins left to pick….lol. We did manage to get 3 small ones, thankfully!
All in all, we had a great time. I love this time of year. I did, however, come to the conclusion that I will NOT be a farmer in my next life!
