for a treck through the longest corn maze ever.
G and Eggs, two awesome ladies that I credit with keeping me sane through the 2011-2012 school year. The last time I saw them together was over a year ago, but today the trifecta of goofy was together to celebrate the season.
Sweetfields Farms is a quant organic farm in Masaryktown, about 45 minutes from Tampa. Last year, I went for the spring festivities and sunflower maze. It was a hot Florida spring and I never made it through the sunflower maze. I did, however, get to pet some cute farm animals including Rosie, a beautiful brown cow. In that previous visit, I also took a hay ride around the farm and played a some old-time games.
The fall festivities weren’t much different, except that there is a corn maze instead of a sunflower maze. Still the same adorable goats…and my buddy Rosie was there too! There was a lot of hay, which is a fall thing, and pumpkins galore. I even scored a gorgeous, mossy green heirloom pumpkin.
The best part, was that maze though. I mentioned to my friends that I didn’t make it through in the spring and I was determined to make it this year. So, there I was with three young children, an Ecuadorian woman and a country girl getting ready to find our way through the maze. Oh, and the only way to get through was to answer turkey questions. I was banking on the country girl to get us through. Even with the correct answers, we somehow kept getting turned around. With each wrong turn, G would repeat “Jeez, this is the longest corn maze ever!”. I couldn’t stop laughing, since she is from Ecuador and had no other corn maze experience to compare it to. Well, we made it through and I learned that turkeys are basically the thugs of poultry. They travel in “gangs” and once had booties…both facts.
I always cherish my time with these two ladies. Perfect weather, festive fun with awesome people…damn near perfect day!
