#1,749 The Annual Jackson Pumpkin Trip.
by Erin Napier
In recent years, since Ben has been in charge of the church pumpkin patch, we make the trip up to Jackson for a day to Charlie Adcox’s wholesale produce to place the order for the patch. Besides being an all-around fun fallish thing to do, it always means a good lunch and a little shopping, too. First things first, we pulled into Brent’s Drugs in Fondren for a grilled pimiento cheese (me) and a Philly cheesesteak (Ben) both with handcut fries. They’ve recently renovated and I swear the food tastes better than ever.
The ‘fairytale’ pumpkins (as we in the patch biz call them) in white and green are my absolute favorite. I always ask Ben to order extra crates of those. He always does.
