The Great Pumpkin

It is not often anymore that I post anything personal. But I had such a great time with my family tonight at Pumpkin Point Farms. It all starts back in the spring, when I planted my pumpkins, but used old seed...did you know you shouldn't use old seed?...dugh...I think common sense told me so...but I was out to lunch that day. Anyhow, although my pumpkin vines grew normally, they did not produce even one bad.

So, even though I haven't been to a pumpkin patch for years, we went tonight. The patch was huge, with a large selection of numerous varieties and wheel barrels to get them around. . There is a cute corn maze for the kids, that isn't hard or scary but fun! There were plenty of opportunities for photo ops-like 10 tractors, bales of straw and a red horse trailer. My pictures turned out so great...but to protect the littles..I only can show you pics of the Bigs. Owned and operated by a family, they offer not only a fun evening but great prices. You see, with my four children, my husband, myself and Grams picking out pumpkins, we had quite a few....and my kids were picking out whoppers! I started to worry a bit that we were going to have to take out a loan to pay for all of them. But be they gave us a great deal, as well as the rest of my family that came along. So I just had to pass the word on....cause I love you all like that.
