Pumpkin picking 2015

We skipped the huge fall festival at the local farm this year and opted to drive up to Ventura to a smaller patch. While we love the local farm the rest of the year (petting zoo, tractor rides) the $45 entry fee for our three paying family members plus food, rides and pumpkins was more than I was willing to spend. 

We found a great small patch and the kids went nuts trying to find a pumpkin that maxed out their lifting limits. Our rule is that they can have any pumpkin so long as they can carry it themselves. 

We got them home and they're chomping at the bit to carve them already.

  1. That's a genius rule! We DID opt for the $45 fee to get in, but I'm totally buying my pumpkins at the grocery store for $3. Ha! Not sure we'll do the hefty price tag places next year... we'll see. We've lived here 5 years now and done 4 of these places and aren't interested in going back to any, really. The one we did yesterday was basically like Camp Snoopy. Rides! Attractions! Fair food! SUPER well oiled machine and yet there were more people there than Campy Snoopy. Beh.
