Preparations . . .

We enjoyed a weekend of preparing the farm for the upcoming season of Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch. We all do our own parts during the year, but my favorite time is when all the family comes down to work together. The beautiful weather was just what we needed to keep us going as we worked outside. I love that coolness in the air. It makes everything feel so….autumnish! Justin was working on preparing the trail for the barrel train, Dan was busy in the shop creating contraptions for the destruction zone, Papa was wiring the converted education room, Grammy fed us all, Angie and I were working on scheduling and store preparation, and the grandkids… had the most important job this weekend. They were cuddling the two new kittens and putting together scarecrows.

Final Weekend for the Season

I can hardly believe that this weekend is the final chance for families to come out to celebrate autumn at Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch. Somehow the past 5 weeks have flown by! We have enjoyed meeting many new families and students this season.  Join us for one last hurrah this weekend! There are still pumpkins waiting to be chosen, train rides to be taken, pumpkins to be smashed, and family memories to be made. Sundance Farm will have Scotty out to pull the wagon on Saturday, so bundle up and come on out!

Busy Week

Last week was great fun! I wanted to catch up with a few pictures.

A highlight of the week was Anna Cyr’s group of students from several counties.    

My own children were very interested in having the students show them how the Braille machine works.

This weekend was busy as well! Many families came out to enjoy the day on the farm and left with the perfect pumpkins for carving. Thanks, Julie Wisbey for the pictures. Don’t forget that she is out most weekends, available for family autumn photo sessions.

REAL Autumn Weather

I have to admit that it felt quite cold today out on the farm.  I love the brisk autumn weather, but coupled with the mist this morning…brrrr! Once we were outside running around, we warmed up a bit.  The hot cider and coffee were helpful too.  Besides, do you really want to pick pumpkins on a 90 degree day? Tonight there is a frost/freeze warning. Of course, this is a bit dangerous especially for our pre-picked pumpkins, BUT we have it all under control. It takes some work, but all of our pre-picks are tucked in snug tonight. Tomorrow, come on out and choose one of the most coddled pumpkins on the planet!

Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch – One Last Hurrah!

Tomorrow is your last chance to come enjoy the day with us at Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch! It is hard to believe that the season is coming to a close.  If you are still looking for the perfect Jack-O-Lantern, fall decor, or just plain family fun, come out tomorrow for the Great Pumpkin Sale.  How big are your arms?  We still have a good variety of pumpkins, gourds, bales, corn stocks…but not for long!
