At the pumpkin patch

October 9, 2017

It’s nearly Halloween, so we couldn’t pass the date without a trip to find a pumpkin! As Amelie is now a little older and well aware of Halloween, she was so excited to go and choose her very own one.

We went to Garsons farm in Esher, Surrey and we had a glorious morning, the sun was shining and the pumpkin field looked beautiful.


Amelie, Evie and their cousin had such fun walking the entire field looking for the pumpkin they wanted to take home.


Evie was more interested in trying to climb over them and or roll in the mud, but it’s so nice now she’s walking to let her explore.


We settled on a pumpkin, but the question I always ask is ‘what to do with it’?

We are going to make a traditional Halloween pumpkin ready for the night but I am also going to try and make a pumpkin pie. I’ll let you know how I get on.

After all of the hunting for the perfect pumpkin we treated ourselves in the cafe. Garson’s is a fantastic place to visit for all the family.


Have you been to collect your pumpkin? What do you usually do with yours?

    I adore pumpkin patches probably just a little bit too much. We’re doing the same, making lanterns for Halloween and then either pie or soup afterwards!

    Ohhh… I want a pumpkin patch! I’m sure the older 3 would love it! Beautiful photographs. (The orange of the pumpkins against the brown of the mud really sums up Autumn doesn’t it?)

    Aw these are the most cutest photos I have seen, I love how natural they are too. I really would love to take my two to the pumpkin patch this year as we have never done it before. xx

      No I hadn’t either and I was surprised how long we stayed there, they were amazed! It’s so nice for them to see where food comes from. Thanks for reading x
