A Pumpkin Patch

“Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate…”

We found a real pumpkin patch over the weekend.  There was also hay bale maze and a small petting zoo.   We all enjoyed the outing in the sunny and warm fall weather.

Miss H loved the walk through the field finding the pumpkins still attached to their vines.

After we visited with the animals (rabbits, pigs, chickens and a sheep with her lamb!), we picked out our very own pumpkin.   Next weekend:  jack-o-lantern carving. This is something new for Mr. F too.  I’m pretty sure he has never carved one.

I am still on the lookout for a replacement for the fabulous Drumlin farm outside of Boston in the U.S.  It is a working farm with both farm animals and wild animals native to the area. Perfect for toddler Miss H.  And now for these pre-school days, it would have been great for her to see how the crops are grown and even pick some herself.

The good news is that I just saw something interesting about an ostrich farm in the Warsaw area.  Will check it out soon and report back!
