Fall Fun


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!

My Pumpkins














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???

That last pumpkin is a monstrosity!

I'm trying not to comment on your own homegrown pumpkins. Trust me when I tell you that I want to though. ;)

Cute post...any way you look at it!
I love the pic of the kids with the "big" one. Good luck with your challenge for next year.

What do you do with a pumpkin that big?

I say you can do anything you want! If you want to grow 'em that big, then you can! I am so looking forward to pumpkin picking next weekend. Its a little late, so I'm hoping there will still be some to choose from.

Great photos. I'm heading to the pumpkin patch next Saturday. I can only hope it's as cool as that one. probably not though!! LOL

I say go for it!! YOu can totally grow that large old pumpkin. And I think the ones you did grow, turned out spooky and you should spray paint them black and silver to make them even cooler!!

So much Fall fun! We walked past a display of gourds at the grocery store and the dude grabbed one of the little mini pumpkins and held it the entire time. Guess it's time I took him to the patch. Ah ha

That is a MEGA PUMPKIN!

Great pictures.

If you grow one that big, I want to know HOW you do it!

I think you can grow one bigger than that.
Those you grew didn't look that bad.
