Picking Our Own Pumpkins. 


A couple of weekends back Keighley was away on a Girlie weekend so I had the boys all to myself for two days. On the Saturday morning I decided I wanted to do something with them to keep them busy. 

I had read on a local Facebook Group about a farm that allowed you to go and pick your own pumpkins and thought the kids would love it. Last year we had taken them Potato Digging  and they loved it so thought this would be a fantastic idea. 

When we arrived we parked in a field near the entrance and were greeted by two huge round hay stacks with pumpkins painted on. Oliver loved them and ran up to them asking for his photo to be taken. 

We entered the place which was obviously a great big field to be greeted by a very friendly person who explained what we had to do and what else there was to do once we’d finished picking our pumpkins. This included things like Pumpkin Bowling and other games. 

We grabbed a wheelbarrow and headed off into the field. Oliver and Leo immediately started picking up pumpkins they wanted so Daddy had to step in and sort out what was actually useable for us. 

We ended up with six pumpkins and Oliver also picked some corn on the cob to take home and eat, which in total came to £9 so a lovely cheap trip out.  The kids had a lovely time and Oliver has asked if we can go again.

Yesterday I took the boys to go and pick some pumpkins. 

Well we’ve never done pumpkin picking before, although we have done Potato Digging and the kids loved that so I was sure they would love this and they did. 

This photo above shows the boys once we had arrived home looking at the various pumpkins we had picked. Oliver commented that he had never seen a white pumpkin before and that they looked like ghosts.
