(Pumpkin) Patch Yourself Up

Fall is finally upon us. And with the leaves set to change color and fall soon, there are plenty of farms around Maryland ready to celebrate this spooky season with pumpkin patches, corn mazes and more.

There’s something exciting waiting for you. You just need to stay persistent and find it (and watch out for ghosts).
