Let's all go to the pumpkin patch!
A couple of years ago we started a tradition of going to the pumpkin patch the last weekend in September. We join two other families and go to Half Moon Bay, the place to get your pumpkin, before the rush. After, we go to the beach to enjoy Indian summer.
I used to joke that I prefer the more commercial patches that have the decorations and attractions, but this 'rustic' patch has grown on me.
There is hardly anyone there when we go. Our group of friends begins with a picnic lunch at a shaded table. Then its off to pick pumpkins and take pictures against the festive landscape of orange and green. It goes nicely with the 'Giants' colors.
The pumpkins are cheap!
And the smiles are free!
