This past Sunday, Ms. Sheila (aka Gypsy Biscuit here on Something’s Burning) headed down the road to a farmer friend’s pumpkin patch.  He has a lot of different pumpkins.  Itty-bitty pie pumpkins.  Big old fat pumpkins.  And, some really Ginormous pumpkins.

It is difficult to tell from the photo just how big some of them are, but inside his little pumpkin stand he had one that weighed over 100 pounds.  I was a dork and did not get a photo of his little stand because I was too busy watching all the cute little kids having their picture made with the pumpkins and fall decorations.  One little girl kept calling them pun-kins.  So dang cute!   And, here are my ‘pun-kins’.  I’m not sure if they’ll stay like this or if I’ll move them.  It is just where they are for now.

Sheila and I braved some drizzling rain and ventured out into the pumpkin patch to select our pumpkins of choice.  We looked like a couple of monks in our little black ponchos.  Or maybe it was a one of those weird little characters from Star Wars with the hooded cloaks and glowing eyes (Jawas).  Anyway – we had a good time despite the rain.  We did a little historic town venture, took in the Lincoln apple festival and then had some hot tea to warm ourselves up.  It was  a great afternoon with a wonderful friend. 

So brave that drizzling rain and get out there and enjoy the fall activities.  Go get yourself a PUN-KIN!

    Dear Lord,
    Thank you for giving me a friend like Jamie so that when I go on my little food field trips I have someone else to talk to. It takes a special friend to enjoy a day centered solely around pumpkins, apples, & defunct grain mills. Also, Lord, thank you for blessing me by not being embarrassed when she posts goofy pictures of me on the Internet for the whole wide world to see. And thank you for pumpkins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, roasted pumpkin, pumpkin soup, and pumpkin pasta sauce.
