Finally, it is that time of the year when the leaves change to beautiful colours of orange, amber and green, and we welcome the festivities like Thanksgiving and Halloween. Thanksgiving is the time to give gratitude and appreciate everyone who have helped us in any way. Every age group enjoys this colourful time of the year.
It is also the time of harvest in Canada and all the celebrations are just incomplete without the pumpkins which not only look attractive and tempting but also delicious as well.
It is rightly said: Pumpkin spice, it’s so nice!

Things to be taken care of while going to a Pumpkin patch in the farms
The weather could be cold so it is advisable to take jackets with you. If you are going to a farm, it could be muddy or slippery so dress appropriately. Good waterproof footwear, such as boots, should be worn so that you could walk comfortably.
Also, most farms are not pet friendly so you can always check with the place you are visiting beforehand.
