Picking Berries and Thinking About Fall!


We always look forward to blueberry season at the Pumpkin Patch!

This year the trip out to pick berries was even more memorable because we took along two of our favorite pals!


After picking buckets of blueberries, Sophia and I picked 6 baskets of beautiful, juicy, delicious raspberries for her Mom to freeze. Actually we picked more than 6 baskets but only 6 made it out of the field in the baskets. The rest - left the field in our tummies!


And Antonio took charge of the basket while his Mom shopped at the produce market.


Labor Day weekend is Harvest Festival time at the Pumpkin Patch! And for the second year, my sweetie and I will be hanging out from 10:00 to 3:00 on Monday, Labor Day. We will set up a totally free, crafty area just outside the market.

Last year, visitors kept our tables full all day - painting gourds and making wheat House Blessings.

Locals! Think about spending part of your day at the farm and joining us. There will be hay rides, good food and a fabulous selection of farm fresh produce. And don't forget U-Pick options too! Check out the Pumpkin Patch Harvest Festival info here!


I have wheat drying in my garage and I am cleaning gourds like crazy! 60 so far and still going!

I hope to see some of you there.

Oh I do wish we could visit
