I went out back this afternoon and was working the old JD "B". Getting the pumpkin patch worked up so we can have a bunch of pumpkins for all the kids in both my family and my wifes family. I am thinking about having a family hay ride this fall along with a pumpkin picking day. This would be our first. Kinda excited about the thought of it.

Wow, nice to see that others are as excited about this as I am. Pics will come although it will be several months from now.

My wife was coming up with some great ideas to make this a fun event for all ages.

Betty, if you want to make the 7-8 hr drive north than yes you most certainly can come.

if you engrave names of all the peaple in pumpkins then they can find theres in a pumpkin hunt you can use a battery powered cutter if you want to be fancy or simply scratch name in green pumpkin with a nail before it starts to change colour the name will scab over we have a few peaple that come to field and do this

It all sounds great Kevin. We always had a fall cookout and big hayride after finishing the tobacco harvest.

Seeds are in the ground and watered as well as a few sunflower seeds. Cross your fingers for a great pumpkin harvest this fall.

I think I have about 60 pumpkin seeds planted. Of course I will end up thinning some out too. Not sure on how many sunflower seeds I put in the ground but it was a lot.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's not looking good. With the long and ***HOT*** drought we are having up here the pumpkins are not looking good at all. I will need to try and fill a 55 gal drum and try to get some water back there to them.
