My husband and I took the kids out to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. We actually grew our own pumpkins this year. However, we forgot this little thing called fertilizer and our pumpkins are a little on the sorry side. Ironic, since I am married to a FARMER. Can you believe it? He had the nerve to be too busy with the "real" farm to deal with our measly lil' punkin patch. Well, no worries LadyDi learned some things from her trial run and I am going to grow me some gi-normous pumpkins next year. I'm talking "Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" BIG!
See, you can hardly tell the difference RIGHT????? Let's just say I'm not going to chuck it all and become a professional pumpkin farmer anytime soon....
Anyway, the kids and I have been going to this pumpkin patch for some years now and this was the first time Dad got to come (this is harvest time). He is usually working like crazy, but he actually had some time off so he was able to join us. This place is so cool because it has every squash, gord, and pumpkin you can imagine. There is a corn maze, haunted house, and bouncy house for the kids to play. Our kids love it, even the 14 yr.old (at least for now).
Now that's what I'm talking about.... Do you think I can grow some as big as this next year???
