No, I am not talking about the gardens that you have been neglecting! While traveling along the New York Thruway, my wife saw a road sign that made her do a double-take. As you can see below, they are advertising "Weed Orchard - Pick Your Own."
As it turns out, this is a wonderful orchard where you can pick your own apples, peaches, pears, pumpkins and grapes & vegetables on their 150-acre farm. This isn't local to central Connecticut, but if you are looking for a great day trip, who can resist going to Pick Your Own Weeds? They are open through October 31 (including Columbus Day) weekdays: 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday and Holiday Weekends: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
