  3. It’s certainly that time of year, isn’t it? Lovely take on this time of year. I love this theme of including the little one of late!

  4. I wouldn’t go there in the dark Scott, those things might gang up on you……….have they been left there, only I don’t see any with stems connected to a plant………..oh, the mysteries of nature.

    • That’s a frightful thought, John…. I’m pretty sure the farmer and his crew have already groomed the field and prepared the pumpkins for easy removal by the customers…. There was a horde of people visiting when we were there….

  5. You are so lucky ! I was hoping to get to a pumpkin patch this year, but alas didn’t make it. This is the next best thing!

  6. Reminds me of doing that with my kids. I’ll bet he picked out the “best one” in the whole patch.

    • He did pick out the best one for him, Allen…thank you. And memories…yes….

    Great shots. I don’t think I have ever seen so many pumpkins on the ground before – even in a photo.

    • Thank you, Victoria…and no, it’s not a common sight….

  9. Wow – I’ve never seen anything quite like it! Although I’m usually wary of generalisations but in the UK pumpkins tend to ‘turn up’ in supermarkets at this time of year – in order to be hollowed out and en-candled for Halloween – only to disappear again. I’ve seen a couple up at the allotments but they are quite small in comparison to these. Maybe I’m just not tuned-in to squash in general πŸ™‚

    • I’m with you there, Meanderer…for most of my life, pumpkins did just “turn-up” at the store at this time of the year. It’s only in the last several years that I’ve lived close enough to agriculture where I’ve actually been able to experience pumpkins like this…. It’s rather neat…. πŸ™‚

  11. It feels appropriate sitting here looking at a field of pumpkins on Halloween!

    October 31, 2012 at 10:26 am

    • It does seem appropriate, somehow…. πŸ™‚
