Pumpkin Plethera

When my sweet little daughter Bitty got invited to go with a friend to a 'pumpkin patch' I envisioned one of those commercial places where you wander around some cute little photo-op pumpkins before spending $3 - $29 on a pumpkin.  Well, that's not how it went.  After Bitty was gone for a very long time I went to pick her up from her friend's house and discovered that I should have brought my pick-up truck because there wasn't enough room in my van for all the pumpkins.  That's how it goes when it turns out that this was an actual pumpkin farm where the girls went.  I guess her friend's mom's boyfriend is a chef who uses a lot of produce from a farmer in Tooele and thus the farmer said Come Pick Pumpkins! and that is exactly what they did.  We now have a porch absolutely loaded with adorable and also sort of massive pumpkins. It's very festive.  I'm a little afraid of being raided but until that day we love our holiday display.

One problem. The kids think we're carving every single one of them. Will someone please break it to them that they will be very lucky children if we manage to carve any at all?  Thank you.

Actually, the porch looks pretty well decorated with un-carved pumpkins!
