I was heading out to work this morning, saying goodbye to Jefferson and all the gang,
noticing that the leaves are peaking here in The High Country,
when Della see's some folks coming up our road (BooneDocksWilcox Holler Rd),
Oh Yeah! it's Purkey's three brothers - Beecher, Sap, and Piney. We all love those boys, they've come over to visit and deliver more pumpkins to sister Purkey, they've got a big order to fill for this weekend. Purkey brews the cider and the boys go out and sell it to customers.
The fella's brought pumpkins and gave us some corn.
Two Pumpkin Seeds
One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a long green vine.
A pumpkin grew. I called it mine.
My pumpkin was quite round and fat.
I really am quite proud of that.
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed, you see.
Now will it grow inside of me?
The boy's live near the Blue Ridge Parkway, but wish they'd move over here. They have a large pumpkin patch just around that bend, on Maple Branch Dr.
The view from their pumpkin patch.
They'll be working at the Woolly Worm Festival this weekend selling Pumpkin Cider so if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by.
