We made the annual pilgrimage to the local pumpkin patch last weekend. We try to get there every year and it never fails to give us something to smile about. This year we liked the pumpkin matching dog. You walk up to the pumpkins and he sniffs out the one you were meant to have. Well that's what he did for me anyway.
I got some decorative squash and a whole bunch of gourds in addition to the pumpkins. I always think I am buying too much and then I get home and realize that a few more pumpkins on the back porch sure would have been nice.
He also had some squatty, kind of flattish, red-tinged pumpkins that were interesting to look at. I sure wish I would have gotten his name last week so I could call him and tell him I am coming back this weekend. I just know he is going to want to answer more pumpkin cross-pollinating questions.
