Lattin Farms in Fallon, Nevada, is the main farm for the CSA (community supported agriculture) subscription that I do every week from spring through autumn. About this time every year, they do a fall festival with kid activities, pumpkin patch and corn maze. The highlight of the festival is The Pumpkin Tower.
If I haven’t already bragged about all of the cool stuff where I live enough, here’s another one for you. There is an amazing alfalfa farm down the road where there are tons of mule deer almost every day. Apparently, the farmer isn’t really into worrying about how much alfalfa he gets because the deer are busy eating it. I think they run a bed and breakfast on the farm so I’m sure sitting on the porch and watching a couple hundred (yes, hundred) deer wander by every day doesn’t hurt business.
This is what my husband sees every day on his way to work. I head the other direction but it is only about three miles from our house so I can take the long way every once in a while to enjoy the view, too. I’m feeling pretty lucky about that.
I guess I need to remember that the next time I’m all grumpy about the world. I have it pretty good.
There is only about twenty minutes of driving between Reno and Carson City, the state’s capitol, but there is also the most beautiful little valley. Today’s post is dedicated to its year-round splendor.
