Pumpkin Picking and a Maize Maze
No kids, no teens, no grandchildren, not even a chihuahua went to the pumpkin patch with us this year. Just Hubby and moi.
First on the agenda - stocking up on pantry items. So many things to choose from!
Decorative gourds - not for eating. And I have a few of these at home.... somewhere.
These were hard decorative pumpkins too, but pretty with the gold and orange. I bought one.
I also bought a turban, and a white acorn squash. Didn't buy any of those pretty hubbards as I have two from my own garden this year. I love those giant "Cinderella" pumpkins on the ground but I passed them up for one of those French warty ones. I can save the seeds to grow more next year.
Next on the to-do list - find our jack-o-lantern pumpkins.
Acres and acres to wander in search of the perfect orange orb.
I did the hard work of posing. We picked that extra tall pumpkin on the right for extra tall William, the other tall pumpkin on the left is Hubby's, the cute round pumpkin in the middle is mine. I prefer the classic Jack shape.
Hubby did the hard work of getting the pumpkins back to the car.
The corn maze. Hmmmm, the corn grew really tall this year. But still, how daunting can it be?
It's not like there's zombies in there or anyth.... uhm. Gulp.
And if we go in, can we find our way out? Hubby found the IN.
At least the paths are well marked.
He was trying to be a spooky monster "hiding" in in the corn. I'm not real sure he pulled this one off.
It's getting a bit thicker deep in the middle. What was that sound!? Did I see something move?!!
Oh, hehe, it was just a bird.
At least 40 minutes later.......
I think I see civilization of some kind, maybe we'll get out of here before the sun sets after all!
Did I hear someone?
Yay! I found the END! All by myself. Well, maybe with a little help from a feathered friend or two.
It's so pretty out here, it's hard to leave. One more task - prowl the gift shop. Yes, I bought a few things, I'll have to post about them another day.
Time to load up the car and take our bounty home. Bye!
