i'm happy to finally get to share our pumpkin patch pictures. we were lucky enough to take 2 visits this year, this first to farmer john's pumpkin patch in half moon bay (pumpkin capital of the world), and the second to larry's produce in suisun valley. both are working farms--no strip mall pumpkin patch for us this time. instead we checked out where the pumpkins are grown, and got way filthy sitting around in the dirt and hay, soaking up the autumn sunshine. tractors, a 1200 pound pumpkin, hay towers and tunnels, little red wagons and wheelbarrows, an indian teepee, squash of all kinds--i'd forgotten just how fun the pumpkin patch is. of course, i'm seeing it through lucy's eyes now, who is apparently a HUGE fan of the color orange (see picture # 01).
happy (almost) halloween! costume pictures to come!
