I can’t explain to you enough, how excited I am to be writing this post. I have always wanted to go pumpkin picking, but unfortunately, I’ve never had the chance too. I decided that I really wanted to go to a pumpkin patch, literally yesterday, so I decided to have a look online for the closest one to me. It was a lot easier than I thought as I came across one just before Southampton called Sunnyfields Farm. It was quite fortunate really, as they normally just do the regular fruit and vegetables which is why they had made a separate space, further up the road, for all the pumpkins. I didn’t really know what to expect as I have never been to one before, but of course, I had visions of what I expected it to look like.
I was surprised actually by the number of pumpkins left considering it is now the 28th October. I mean, there wasn’t any colourful or unusual ones in the fields, but there was still plenty to choose from. I had a vision of what it would look like and that I would see a lot of pumpkins in rows and rows, just like the photos I have seen from American pumpkin patches. Of course, it wasn’t going to be exact, but there were some rows within the field. I think it was such a great idea how they had a pumpkin picking option indoors as well as outside because as you can notice from the photos, there was definitely grey clouds over us.
I had so much fun going pumpkin picking with Kevin for the first time and we both very much enjoyed it. It was lovely to be able to hunt for your perfect pumpkin and to be able to look at all the different colours, sizes and shapes which you don’t get to see in the supermarkets. I definitely 100% recommend going to a pumpkin patch. You will have so much fun and it’s a great way to spend time with friends or family.
I had so much fun today as you can see from these photographs. I can’t believe it took me 21 years to go to a pumpkin patch. I will definitely be going next year. If you have been to be a pumpkin patch, comment below and let me know on your experiences. Now is the best part… time to see what pumpkins we actually bought. The prices are really good, especially for the farm that we went to. We got a total of 7 pumpkins which cost £15 – obviously the size of the pumpkin will determine the cost. These are all the pumpkins that we choose. LET’S GET CARVING!!!!!
Thank you so much for popping back onto my blog. I hope you enjoyed reading this little post and love seeing all the photographs. I will now be uploading posts every Sunday and Wednesday at 6pm. Don’t forget to give me some ideas as to what I should post during Blogmas. Have a great week everyone.
