Pumpkin Patch

We mark the passing of the seasons in so many ways, but in our home a visit to the pumpkin patch at VanSomeren's farm is the surest sign that another year has gone by.  

{"If you can carry it, you can keep it!"}

{My favorite part of the barn.  The Turks, with their unusual colors, shapes and textures.}

Someday soon we’ll have our very own heirloom pumpkin patch with Jack Be Littles, Blue Moons, Moonshine Pumpkins, Aspen, and Rouge Vif d Etampes, all nestled into the rolling hills of Rusk County. For now, though, we hold onto the long standing tradition of visiting the VanSomeren farm after the air turns cool each fall season.  {And yes, Jacob.  We will be taking this picture every year until you're all old and gone.}

Wishing you a wonderful weekend~
