Pumpkin Patch

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been lucky enough to be able to cross several things off my Autumn Bucket List – you may have spotted a roast dinner and an open fire already, and last weekend was also a similarly autumnal weekend with lots of winter-y candles, snoozing under blankets on the sofa and an amazing pint of  local cider and Ploughmans lunch in a little café in the forest.  Ticking off things on my Autumn Bucket List is definitely more fun than trucking through my personal to-do list – I think I am going to add pub lunches and conker collecting to all my to-do lists to make them a little more fun to complete!

Last Sunday afternoon we visited our local pumpkin patch and chose a pumpkin each for carving later on.  I drive past the pumpkin patch every day on my way to and from work (in the summer you can go strawberry picking there) and have been enviously eyeing all of the families huddled together in scarves and gloves choosing pumpkins.  There’s even little sledges for children to use to carry their pumpkins back to the till if they’re too heavy to carry!

We spent a little while nosing our way around the patch and trying to find the perfect pumpkins.  Sadly I think we were a little late as some of the pumpkins looked like the birds had got there first, or were on the turn.  It was still a lot of fun though and I think we found two good’uns! We are away this weekend so hopefully they’ll still be prime for carving when we get back….
