I checked out several places, but Grandad's Apple Farm had the most pumpkins, and therefore, the best prices.
In addition, they had a barbecue stand going, a corn maze (that I found out about later), a huge dinosaur statue that all the kids wanted to climb and all the parents wanted as a backdrop for pictures, and two little goats and a llama you could feed by trickling 25-cent handsful of grain down a long trough.
I appreciated the invitation below, but just didn't feel like maneuvering through the crowds. I like to take my time and look for weird shapes or pumpkins with smooth surfaces for carving.
So I left, and came back the following Fri. morning, when I picked out 4 large pumpkins and 8 mid-sized ones for only $40.00.
Guess what I'm doing tonight?
