Dear California Pumpkin Patches,
Going to the Pumpkin Patch is one of the best parts of Fall, and should be treated as such. A trip to the Pumpkin Patch is one of my top three favorite Fall things (behind Football and Foliage). I suggest taking a quick trip to a Mid-Western state to learn what makes them so amazing. But in case that is not possible, I have compiled a short list of things that one should experience at the pumpkin patch.
The necessary Trio:
Pumpkins: this one is obvious, and you do a great job. But they're ridiculously over priced, and I ended up getting one for 1/5 of the price at Trader Joe's.
Apple Cider: This is a BIG one you're missing. Basically, people care about this just as much as pumpkins.
Donuts: because, DONUTS.
Bonus item: Apples. Apples are ideal, and i've rarely been to a pumpkin patch that also doesn't sell apples.
If these changes are made, I predict a huge increase in revenue, resulting in a corresponding increase in overall Fall cheer amongst Californians!
Side Note: Shoutout to Trader Joe's for providing me with a great pumpkin to carve, delicious apple cider, Organic Pumpkin Puree, and Brownie Mix. They saved the day, and paved the way for a relaxing day of Football and Baking.
