Pumpkin Picking

In the last 10 days we have slowly started picking pumpkins. It seems like every time we start, we get more rain! However, our barn is getting full! But, there's still acres and acres left for all of you who want to come and pick your own. We open on Saturday, October 2nd and look forward to seeing you all!

3 Weeks and Counting...

It has been amazing how much work God has enabled two people to accomplish in the past month. Especially considering Dave and I have a 5 year old and 2 year old in-tow everywhere we go. We have built a full wall in the barn, a loft, cleaned the barn, prepared totes, hand painted signs, designed multiple marketing pieces and ads and, well, the list goes on! We are now just two weeks away from the start of pumpkin picking season and we are excited! The kids and I scouted pumpkins today and here are a few of the little treasures we found.

Every time Dave gets in the tractor, Cooper is right beside him. When the pumpkin blooms first started forming fruit, Cooper kept yelling, "Ball! More balls. Dad, beeketballs (basketballs), more, more!" He was sure the field was full of basketballs. Dave got him down from the tractor and had to explain what the orange balls were all about. Cooper now talks about the pumpkins all the time.

We look forward to seeing you all at The Pumpkin Ranch!
