The Great Pumpkins

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.

The things we take for granted? I have taken my children and then my grandchildren to pumpkin patches for years. Yes, they were always on real farms. As a matter of fact, we are surrounded by farms so there was never any parking lots filled with straw and hay. We have a farm less than a mile from our house where we visit the horses and cows at least once a week. Shaun & Nikolas love it. I am sure when Ava is old enough she will love it too. Tonight, we are all going (nieces/nephews/cousins/aunts/ect) to a Halloween party together. It will be cute to see all the little ones (and big ones) dressed up. Have a happy pumpkin day from our family to yours.
