Back to the Pumpkin Farm

10.05.2013

It was such a pretty day today, but very hot, that we decided to drive to the pumpkin farm so I could get a few more pumpkins. Well, I use "we" loosely. Mr. Savvy really didn't want to go, but I sweet talked him into it. As long as he was back by the time UGA was playing on t.v. then it was okay to go. This time I took my good camera instead of just taking iphone pics.


What a difference three weeks made since I went with my daughter and Leila. They were so full today we had to go to the next parking area.

We had to walk a bit to get to the pumpkin patch. We crossed this little covered bridge.

This is the creek the bridge goes over. Folks were wading in the cold water on this summer like day.

Other folks enjoying family picnics in the shade.

I bent down to take this shot. I asked Leila to sit on one so I could get her picture and then I saw the sign in the distance.

Guess no posing on the pumpkins allowed.

This set up was right next to the large orange pumpkins.

Leila was mesmerized.

Huge crowds today. We were practically the only ones here three weeks ago. It will only get worse the next two weekends.

Leila was trying to find a little pumpkin that she could pick up.

Mr. Savvy, because I have a front porch to decorate and blog about. :)





It was very hot out in the sun so I made my choices very quickly.



My stash. $36.... not too shabby.

Now all I need are some mums. 

Happy Fall!

  1. Hi Kim, This post brought back so many memories of when we lived in Ca. Although we didn't do a lot of Halloween things, we definitely went to the pumpkin patch each year. Then we moved here and both girls grew their own pumpkins so I don't get as many as I used to. I bought a few mini's this year but not a pie size one-trying to avoid a lot of baking, since I have to do gluten free. Loved seeing your patch-what a huge farm and what fun. Makes me want to grab some grands and take them out to one, just for the fun on it.
    Hugs, Noreen

  2. I haven't bought pumpkins or mums. I have one mum that came back from last year and is about to bloom. I just don't have enough porch space to display them.

  5. What a fun way to pick your pumpkin! I liked it when our church had a pumpkin patch, but for some reason they stopped doing that. Now, I go to the Piggly Wiggly and pick one out. Still too hot here for a real one. It will rot in the heat.

  7. $36.00 for all those pumpkins? Wow, what a deal. We don't have prices like that here in Northern California! And I love the shades of your pumpkins too. Such pretty colors. But my favorite photos are of Leila...she is so darn cute with her sunglasses. I don't think there's anything more fun than going to the pumpkin patch when you've got little ones with you. Oh, and those pictures of the hubby made me laugh. What a good sport, hope he got back in time to see UGA .. hahaha

  21. Never have enough pumpkins!!! Love them so. This year I have a huge 50 lb white pumpkin. My poor husband luged him home and carried him up the stairs (many) of our portico. We are going back to pumpkin patch with our grandson from Florida soon. We'll get MORE !

  22. Mr. Savvy is such a good sport. How fun that you have a little one to experience this with. I love watching it through the eyes of a child. Happy mum shopping.

  27. Oh, Kim, I burst out laughing when I saw your caption of Mr. Savvy asking why you need so many pumpkins! I had to show it to Mr. Goo Shoes, along with your answer, so we both had a laugh! Great pictures, all of them!

  29. Wow! Another great haul! The pumpkins they have there are amazing! I like all those squatty ones. Hard to carve by such a cute shape! Poor Mr. Savvy! He deserves an extra special treat. Maybe a big ice cream or something! I think I'd stay away from anything pumpkin for a while :) Hugs, Leena

  31. All last week we also had gorgeous weather around here, just today the rain came but I'm not complaining at all. I'm still planning my trip to the pumpkin patch, if the weather is fine maybe next weekend. You got a good variety to choose from, looking forward to see them on your porch :)
