As summer ends and our toes mourn the freedom of sandals, we start to think of all things Fall.  However, I never thought corn mazes would hit my radar.  I’m thinking about sweaters and fires and s’mores and a good pot of chili  (I use cocoa powder in my chili…really).  I was looking for something to write about because I just wasn’t sure this audience wants to see soups, stews and chowders – let me know if you do, I’d be happy to write about them!  But I digress – so I Googled ‘middle tennessee october events,’ and I learned that we sure are serious about our corn mazes here.  What an unexpected treat!
