Last weekend we visited our first real, live pumpkin patch on a farm.
Not just a parking lot covered with hay bales and straw, either, but a place where field after gorgeous field offered up scores of bulbous orange vegetables (fruits? vegetables? fruits? They have seeds on the inside, like fruit, as do tomatoes, which are also often misclassified as vegetables....hmmm).
Anyway, it was a classic Halloween outing, and less than a half hour from the busiest part of the city.
Here, have a look for yourself:
I'm so glad we didn't decide to just get our pumpkin from Safeway this year.
