I do not know how many years we have had our own pumpkin patch.

It really was fun. A really nice gentleman came out and told us to climb up on the trailer and he would take us around the patch.
If we saw a pumpkin we liked just "holler" and he would stop.
We yelled several times, picking out pumpkins we liked.
We would load them on the trailer, even Miss H had to put hers on the back.
Hazel found one we couldn't load.
The patch was full of all sizes and shapes.

We had a great time, but it was really strange when we were all done to
I am saving seeds from these pumpkins so I can have a
PUMPKIN PATCH next year.
