Picking pumpkins just across the river in Millstadt, Illinois. Eckert's is a local supplier of apples, peaches, pumpkins, and other miscellaneous produce. The farm allows people to come and pick the fruits and vegetables when they are in season. The three people on the right are my kids and wife, minus a boy not pictured. The two on the left are neighbors (literally, just up the street) we coincidentally ran into at the farm....a half hour's drive from our houses. And, you can see the St. Louis skyline in the background on a gorgeous fall day.
