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!

This weekend should be a great one to get out to the patch! Today’s wind is blowing in some nice weather for Saturday and Sunday.
The Johnson’s Strings will be providing live music out at Grammy’s. Check out their website at http://www.johnsonstrings.net
Kurt Krehbiel will also be out Saturday with his potter’s wheel throwing all kinds of creations.
We are looking forward to Sundance Farm bringing Scotty out on Sunday to pull the horse wagon again. I’ve been meaning to get a good picture of him pulling.
On Sunday, Nick Mourn, our pumpkin carver will be working on some crazy creation. Here is his pumpkin from last year:
Of course, there are still lots of pumpkins to choose from so you can carve your own at home!Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch 2012 – McPherson, KS
The annual Johnstown Giant Pumpkin contest took place at Grammy’s yesterday evening. The largest pumpkin, a Dill’s Atlantic, weighed in at just over 160 pounds!
The giant was grown by Daryl and Kola Johnson of Johnstown.
The evening was such fun with filling food, conversation, and music! Corky explained the founding of Johnstown with several others adding in details as well. I love the stories of my family and heritage and last night was full of them. Leland led in singing, and the grandkids led in dancing. Quite the perfect night!
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!
We enjoyed a great opening weekend at Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch! My favorite part was, as always, watching families connect, play, and make memories. I am looking forward to the week filled with our Agriculture Education classes “In the Class and On the Farm” program.
It was a beautiful day at Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch! Thank you to everyone who came out for the “pick of the patch”. Here are just a few…
We loved having Sundance Farm bring out their ponies again. Rye and Andy are so sweet! Scotty was out pulling his wagon in style too!
Today is the kick-off of the pumpkin patch season for Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch at Johnstown Farm, nestled in the Smoky Valley between McPherson and Lindsborg.There is a beautiful selection of pumpkins and gourds from which to choose. The perfect jack-o-lantern is waiting inside of one of those pumpkins just for you!
Sundance Farm will be with us today from 1-4:00. Horse drawn wagon rides with Scotty in the lead!
Come out to enjoy a beautiful autumn day with your family and play all day. We’ve got plenty of Grammy’s famous cinnamon rolls and cookies fresh from the oven. We are excited to see old friends and make new friends this season!Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch 2012, McPherson, KS
