At the Yankee Farmer farm stand (603-547-6421, www.yankeesiege.com
) in Greenfield, New Hampshire, crowds gather every fall to watch as a medieval trebuchet catapults pumpkins up to 2,400 feet through the air. Why? Why not? Make it a day by going on a hike on the nearby Wapack Trail (www.wapack.org
) just be sure to grab a picnic lunch from Twelve Pine in Peterborough

Admission to the catapulting is free; check the Yankee Siege website for dates.
