I have been so excited about getting to share my TRUE LOVE with you all. It's a pumpkin patch. And it is run by the sweetest lady who ever walked the earth. Mary. It's a family effort. Mary's husband, the sweetest man who ever walked the earth and her children all work the farm. That's the farmhouse. Can you take it? It makes me so HAPPY to just see it every year. My friend, Julie and I used to sit in the car under the pear tree..yea, that's right...I said pear tree.... and we would like to guess what they were having for dinner in there. Meatloaf with gravy? Swiss steak and mashed potatoes? Roast chicken with stuffing? Spaghetti Bake with cheddar cheese on top? Is there a pot roast in the crock pot to have after a hard day in the pumpkin patch. Julie and I took a trip to New England a few years ago in October, and while we did visit alot of great pumpkin patches, Mary's ranks right up there in the top 3. We used to joke about it....3000 miles.....and Mary's...right in our own backyard.

Today my brother Mark and Julie and I rolled up the driveway, but we could see they were just setting up. All hard at work, decorating, stacking the pumpkins in neat rows.... so busy...working so hard...there is even a witches path with a cemetary, a corn maze and and animals to feed and pet.

They should be opening this weekend. Stay tuned.


  1. This is my favorite post so far! Just wonderful. I also like to guess what people are eating for dinner, and the farmhouse is so idyllic! Thank you for sharing this!

  2. The farm house is perfect. Your post always make me hungry and it is only 7am!!!

  3. Remember the ancient graveyard at the Inn near Camden? The acorns? the walk in the woods? Talk about Halloweenie!
    Oh, that farmhouse. Just to see the kitchen would make my year.
    Let us not forget Dot's Diner

  4. I just love October..and finding the perfect pumpkin patch is the best. That farmhouse is to die for too! I wish I lived close enough to visit this one. Still looking for the perfect one in our area after 7 years...sigh.
    I am getting out all my fall stuff and making a "pumpkin patch porch" on our front porch this next week. Autumn is my favorite season for sure!

  6. P.S. Any chance I can convince you to get on twitter? Sue and I chat it up on there, it's so much fun!

  7. Beautiful! You're right, there's nothing quite like a pumpkin patch. We have quite a few here in New England and I never get tired of seeing them. My most wonderful experience was when I visited my family in Pennsylvania last fall and decided to take a drive through some country back roads. I came upon what must of have at least 5 acres of pumpkin patch on a slight slope facing me. It was like looking at thousands of bright orange stars!

  8. So unbelievably delightful! And those pumpkins are just the most brilliant orange...


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate all your kind comments more than you can know.
