My life has gotten a lot slower and much quieter in the past few days. There’s a chill in the air that brings about a sense of calm to oneself. No doubt, fall is one of my favorite seasons – next to the California winters of course. Now that we’re getting some decent breezes and clusters of clouds forming in the sky, it’s a perfect time to welcome the fall season with a visit to the Cal Poly Pumpkin Patch!
The Cal Poly Pumpkin Patch is open until October 30th (the day before Halloween) from 10am – 6pm on Sundays’ to Wednesdays’ and 10am – 8pm on Thursdays’ to Saturdays’. There are no admissions or parking fees to enter the pumpkin patch, so you can just make your way to the field along the white fences. Other attractions include a petting zoo and a corn maze. There’s also a farmer’s market that sells homemade preserves and naturally grown fruits and vegetables. If you’re craving a snack, there are various vendors selling toasted almonds, kettle corn and corn dogs (haven’t touched those since my “Hot Dog on a Stick” days).
Lately, my family and I have been dealing with a lot of shit. It got to the point where we were at each other’s throats, so clearly we needed a break. By taking a quick raincheck on reality, my family and I had ventured out into the beautiful, perfect day. Our time spent at the pumpkin patch helped remind me of how blessed I am, and how I should be more grateful for what I already have, which was my family. Honestly, it’s moments like these that I’m going to remember most.

Now, you’ve got just 2 weeks to get yourself a pumpkin so be sure to make a stop at the Cal Poly Pumpkin Patch before all the good ones are gone. But, most importantly, be sure to bring along your family, a romantic partner(s) or even a friend to enjoy the festivities with. There’s no better way to welcome the fall season than doing it with loved ones!
