Also, we unexpectedly came across a pumpkin patch, with an abundance of pumpkins of all sizes, uncut, still attached at the stem. It's the simplest of things like this that get me the most excited. I couldn't transport a 20 lb. pumpkin back to LA, but still felt the need to go through the notions of picking out a pumpkin, strapping it to the back seat of our rental car and brought it to its new home in NYC where I knew some friends would take good care of him/her.
