SMITHSBURG -- Five-year-old Tyler Remsburg is running down the path, dwarfed by the walls of cornstalks to his right and left. His grandmother, Smithsburg-area resident Denise Cavender, jogs behind. "We have to go the other way," he calls back to Grandma. Tyler, of Hagerstown, had scouted ahead as the pair tries to find their way through the corn maze at Misty Meadow Farm. They are trying to find a series of fake cornstalks at which await a hole-punch to mark their map. The pair disappear around a bend so soon that the only sounds are crickets, cornstalks rustling in the breeze and cows mooing from the Herbst family's dairy operation nearby.

Astronomically speaking, summer's end comes with the autumnal equinox on Sept. 22, but in many people's minds, it ends with the Labor Day weekend's last round of picnics and pool visits. Monday was still very summer-like, with the air muggy from a drenching Sunday night rain, mostly sunny skies and temperatures creeping to about 90 degrees in the early afternoon. “Good weather for pools. Bad weather for corn mazes,” said Clarence Horst, who was hosting both at Celebration Farm on Garden View Road near Hagerstown.

“Where are you?” Charlae Matthews called to her family. Surrounded by tall zig-zagging rows of corn stalks, the 12-year-old had lost sight of her parents and siblings. Just a few moments later, she discovered them a short but winding distance away. “I thought they were going the same way I was, but then they turned around,” Charlae said after they had all made their way back to a clearing. “She thinks she is Magellan,” her father, Larry Pitts, teased. Larry Pitts and his wife, Jennifer, of Hagerstown took Charlae, Larry Pitts, 9, and Jane't Pitts, 7, to the opening day of this year's Hagerstown Corn Maze on Saturday.

About five years ago, farmer David Herbst and his family had a big decision to make. With two of his four children - married with kids of their own - wanting to continue the family business of operating Misty Meadow Farm on the outskirts of Smithsburg, they either needed to drastically increase their dairy production or undertake more custom-crop farming to support everyone. “We needed to go to 600 cows if we wanted to support these other families,” Herbst said, saying the idea was met with great resistance by his daughter, who handles most of the milking of their 160 cows.

The air has changed and there is a bit of a chill now, especially in the evening. This is a sure sign fall is here and with it harvest, the time when farmers glean their fields for the season's return and lamp posts and porches don corn stalks and pumpkins. At this point in the year, farmers will be harvesting corn and soybeans. Most of the areas dairy farmers have already filled their silos with corn silage and are joining their neighbors in shelling the remainder of the corn as grain.
