The Pumpkin Patch

Today was a perfect fall day to visit "the pumpkin patch," which is actually Rimelspach Farm in Fremont, Ohio. It was sunny, breezy and very cool - definitely sweater weather! I love, love, love autumn and this is one of my favorite places to visit each year. So, I twisted my sister's arm to go with me today...no, not really - she loves fall as much as I do, so it wasn't too hard at all to talk her into a spur-of-the-moment drive! Rimelspach Farm is about a half-hour from where we live.


It's a little difficult to tell from my photos, but these pumpkins were huge! Ginormous!
 


 
Stacks of white pumpkins...
 
 
...and funny-shaped white gourds. From a distance, they look like popcorn!
 
 
The old wagons and wagon wheels make perfect props to display the pumpkins!
 
 


 
Back home, this is one of my little displays with a couple of the pumpkins I brought home with me. I'm really liking the white pumpkins more and more, although traditional orange will always be my favorite. 
 
 
 
So, it was a fun day! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend, too!
 
Until next time,
Cindy

How fun, Cindy! Your pictures are wonderful. My son just moved to Illinois and a friend took him to see a pumpkin patch. He had never seen one before and he was blown away by all the shapes and sizes of pumpkins and gourds. He's a Mathematician so he really enjoyed the outing. I enjoyed yours and thanks for taking me along. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Cindy,
A day at the pumpkin farm always gets me in the Fall spirit. We go to one every year. I love your bright orange pumpkins. The white ones are interesting, but like you, I still like the pretty orange ones.

It's a hard choice between traditional orange pumpkins and the pretty white ones. I usually get a big orange and small white ones. Love them all. What a gorgeous place to spend an afternoon. A great place to take my grandson.

Like you, I fall back on the original pumpkins, but those odds and ends, colors, shapes and sizes are really catching . . . Neat pumpkin farm. And your fall display is quite nice. There's a small pumpkin patch nearby - a not a farm, just a patch of them for sale. I'm thinking after all the pumpkins, I think I have to have at least one for display as is and maybe one to carve? Enjoyed my visit! Happy Pink Saturday!
