Dear Spring Ledge Farm customer,
$3. per person.
Bring your boots, as today’s rain might make the dirt paths a little wet (nothing like last year!). Bring a flashlight if you like, bring your friends and family! Parking is at the farmstand.
We’ll have hot dogs, popcorn and cider available as well. Hope to see you there.2012 corn maze __________________________________________________________________
Here is something new on the farm this year; Solanum integrifolium (the eggplant family) is an ornamental fruit that grows “mini pumpkins” on each stem. They look great in fall arrangements and are a real conversation piece.
The fruit are edible, albeit bitter, and used in Asian cooking. Also known as Hmong Eggplant. As they dry, they turn from a scarlet orange to a pumpkin orange.
Other natural fall decorations at the farm include Chinese lanterns, dried grasses and flowers, corn stalks, broom corn, gourds and pumpkins. Combine these with beautiful mums, asters and kales and your fall dooryard is complete.
