Pumpkins!

Joining in a new link up with Kathy over at Mama Kat's Losin' it, and her Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop!
Mama’s Losin’ It
This week's writing prompt I chose is:

Pumpkins! Anything with Pumpkins!

Last weekend the husband and I headed up north to Prescott to check out Freeman Farms and their pumpkin patch!

Besides the pumpkins, Foster Farms has hay rides, corn mazes, shows, food, and a bunch of other stuff for kids...and since we don't have kids, well, we skipped that other stuff.
BUT we did enjoy a hay ride, a journey through the corn maze, some shows, and of course, the pumpkin patch. 
While we were there for pumpkins, I got a little distracted by all the sunflowers that were there.
Cause sunflowers are mah thang.
I followed the clearly marked instructions and took their pictures...

Back to pumpkins...
What's neat about their pumpkin patch is that the pumpkins are actually growing on the vines! you meander through the patch, find one you like, and they come and cut it off the vine!

Since it's still pretty early in October, the pumpkins we got are serving as decoration for now; once it gets closer to Halloween we'll have to get new ones to actually carve. Which just means we'll have to make another trip to a pumpkin patch.
Dang. =)

    We have a few pumpkin patches here, but they are always swamped to the brim because everyone goes on the weekends!

  2. Thanks Amy! I totally know what you mean about the crowds! It gets even more crowded when there's kids running around like maniacs! Haha! Thanks for stopping by! =)
