It just ain’t fall in Ohio until you pick out your pumpkin. Some years, it takes me hours and multiple reconnaissance missions to find the perfect ball of orange loveliness. But during today’s annual fall open house at Paige’s Produce in Stoutsville, my pumpkin found me immediately. I will love him, carve him, and roast his little seeds. The autumnal festivities also included a straw maze, apple cider press, homemade bean soup, and Brezel pretzels. We have participated in a CSA program with the farmers at Paige’s Produce for the past three years. Click here to find out why.
