I must admit, at last, my beloved summer is over. I know we're spoiled here in California because the weather is still great, but I'm gonna miss summer. So as a celebration of fall we decided on an day trip to a farm. Adobe Pumpkin Farm is located at the end of East Washington (at Adobe) in Petaluma. Just when the housing tracts end it gets rural, like I remember from moons ago. Seems like the Neve family still believes that farms belong in the country and not houses.
This is a great place for little kids. If you don't have littles kids, borrow one. The look on their eyes when they spot all the goodies here is intense. Nothing like a little sensory overload for the kindergarten set.
Now you ask"where's the food big guy?"...don't fret my friends! Ricky's Barbecue is on property. Ricky serves the usual burger/hotdog fare for the kiddies, but for us Q addicts he has kickin trip- tip and marinated chicken breast. He has this big towable pit and the smoke rises all day while he tries to keep up with the demand. Only a couple of weeks left until Halloween, try this place out. If you miss the Q, Ricky will also do some catering. I hear he makes some mean Italian food, him being Italian I can understand that.
Rather than bore you with a thousand words more, I'll bore you with a thousand pictures or so.
lots of pumpkins
squashes of all kinds
tri tip with sauted red onions and garlic
Grillin and chillin
