A Patch of Orange


PUMPKINS.......There are a lot of pumpkins this year!



The weather outside yesterday was perfect...I CAN ASSURE YOU,  NO FROST WAS ON THE PUMPKINS around here...


 


There is a pumpkin patch about a block from the house.
The youth group at the Methodist Church has been selling these pumpkins for a couple of weeks now and Trey could not wait to visit this patch because it had so many fun things to do......


This was a wonderful idea and it has been very educational for the elementary kids at our school....Since the patch is so close to the school, each class has been able to take a trip to see the pumpkins and look at all the different kinds.





Pumpkins with veins......



Green weird looking pumpkins.....


Pumpkins with large Stems....


Old looking Pumpkins.....



Pumpkins with warts!......



Baby Pumpkins.....




And.....LARGE Pumpkins....


It takes a lot of time to pick out that special pumpkin.  We were there for quite some time.  In order to pick just the perfect pumpkin to take home, you have to spend a lot of time examining every detail and making sure the shape is the perfect fit for your family....


We had a great time and I took a moment to snap a few pictures.....



Trista....loving every moment!




Tori, Mylee, Trey and Mr. Pooped.....



                                 Trey and Tori....I think Trey loved being a Pumpkin Farmer....




And this is the Lucky Pumpkin that was chosen!


Back in the early part of the summer, I remember wanting to purchase my first watermelon of the season......
The Price?  $6.99   A little too steep for me.

This pumpkin?  $20.00......
WOW!   Can you believe it?

We just have to remember that this pumpkin was purchased for a good cause.  And second of all, it was well worth it just, because the  kids had a great time and it was definitely worth every penny just seeing the joy on their faces!!

Great pictures - did you know they have to put the pumpkins to bed at night? You have to turn them - Kasey said she was sore from putting pumpkins to bed. Happy Halloween!!

I would love to see the vine that some of those pumpkins come from. The stems on top are as round as a small tree!! Incredible!
