Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkins

Ryan and I spent a few hours at the pumpkin patch on a lovely autumn Saturday two weeks ago. There were kids, a corn maze, and kettle corn popping. The weather was sunny and brisk–a perfect day for a stroll through the farm. We decided on the South 47 farm in Redmond.

Pumpkins

I had originally wanted to get all dark green pumpkins to mimic a spread I saw in Martha that was beautiful and dark. I had white pumpkins last year, so it seemed like a good change of pace.

But, they didn’t have any quite dark enough and I really liked the “Cinderella” pumpkins, partly because of the name and mostly because of the gorgeous orange color and the creamy white stripes. So we loaded our wheel barrel with these.

The had this gorgeous wooden box full of gourds. They had stools pulled up next to it so kids could climb up and pick out the ones they liked. I always chose the half and half ones. Doesn’t it seem odd that something could be split so perfectly like that?

And then there was this spread of edible squash–you can see the mini Cinderella pumpkins in the middle there. I just love all of the coloring on squash. It’s so pretty!

We headed home with about 20 pounds of edible pumpkin and a large bag of kettle corn–that was completely emptied by the time we got home.

    Pumpkins amaze me. There are so many kinds and they are all beautiful. It’s so hard to choose. The squash is interesting. I have never seen one like that before!
