Cheap Thrills

RISE OF THE GREAT PUMPKIN: A few miles south of the Tumacacori National Monument along the frontage road next to I-19, La Mirage Farms awaits. This historic farm, which once grew peaches for the King of Spain, is now harvesting its first organic crop of fresh fruits and vegetables for public picking or purchase from the farmer's market. La Mirage is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the Fall Harvest and Pumpkin Festival continuing through the end of the month. Call 579-9035 for information.
