Autumn is my absolutely favorite season! I love the hoodie weather, the colorful trees, the crisp air, bonfires, pumpkin dishes, and of course, Halloween! One of my favorite activities during this time of year is heading out to the pumpkin patch with my son. Yesterday we shared with you a listing of fun local fall festivals and Halloween events. While many of those festivals are held at pumpkin patches, I wanted to share a few additional pumpkin patch locations in Maryland.
