Pumpkin Patch October 8, 2008

A trip to the pumpkin patch or the corn maze are favorite outings this time of year.  The pumpkin patch is a more  traditional way for farmers to make cash from their crop.  A few years ago corn mazes became a less traditional way to use corn as a cash crop.

I happen to live in a rural area where there are still quit a few corn fields.  About one in five will be made into a maze before the final harvest.  Almost every teenager in county will visit a corn maze at least once this year.

I see both pumpkin patches and corn mazes as a win win.  The farmers get a little extra cash for the crops they are growing anyway.  Many adults and kids get a good excuse to go to the country and rump around in the fields for a little while.
