Vince Woods Farm

Our favorite local family owned farm pumpkin patch is closed this year. They could not afford the increase in the liability insurance to keep the barn open. Very sad since it was a really nice family and excellent pumpkin patch. Today we drove out to an older family owned farm that was really charming. My favorite part was the old bathtub full of squash. There was a poll taking place about their haunted woods. The haunted woods would be shut down by the fire marshal unless they made improvements. Its a maze of tarps in trees. Close it or fix the problems and ask for a higher admission fee. Right now its 50 cents. I voted for pay more but we didn't have time to go through haunted fire trap...er...woods. Gorgeous pumpkins and gourds and great corn maze. They give out free baby pumpkins to every kid. It was a quick trip today but I think its worth exploring again next year.

I love that bathtub full of squash too. Neat presentation. Is this where you bought that warty gourd you mentioned?

Justine,

Yes, I bought one big one for the front porch. Will have a dozen pumpkins from the garden ready to go so I didn't buy pumpkins. There are still green pumpkins on the vines so we shall see if any are orange by Halloween. :0 ) Mostly went to the patch to get corn stalks and a bale of straw.
