It’s been a while since I last blogged. I was very busy with moving and that put my blogging schedule behind. Now that we are moved, hopefully I will get back to my regular schedule with my blog. I will tell you more about our move later.
First, here are some photos I didn’t manage to post before we moved. We checked out the Richmond Country Farms pumpkin patch. It was our first time and we didn’t know what exactly to expect. So if you ever wonder what the pumpkin patch looks like in Richmond Country Farms, read on!
The Richmond Country Farms is a farm market, here is where they get their eggs. Eh hmmm, just kidding. This little miniature barn is found at the entrance to the pumpkin patch. Guess they are using this as a form of decorations.
Here is where you pay for your admission. The admission fee is $10 each. It includes a hay cart ride to the pumpkin patch, a pumpkin of your choice and an apple when you come back from the pumpkin patch with your favorite pumpkin. The pumpkin patch is open annually before Halloween and is one of the attractions for families with kids. You can check out their web site for more informaion: http://www.countrypumpkinpatch.ca/
Once you paid and got through the gate, you are greeted by gigantic size corn and carrot.
There is also peas welcoming you to the farm of happy vegetables :P
And Gigantic Corn is reminding you that you can have him for only $1….
Once you get pass the corn and carrot, you will see people gathered around to see some musical show. The seats look very interesting as you may want to wear denim to use them.
It is a musical about pumpkin and corn. They look very funny when they were dancing on stage. Somewhat clumsy but that’s what make them funny.
Of course if you get hungry and don’t want to have corns, you can get some mini donuts.
This look very Western. I was waiting for a while to see if there would be any cowboys running out with pistols and shooting at each other. But that didn’t happen.
Walking away from the crowd, we saw this pathway with lots of pumpkin decorations. But it was fenced off to foot traffic.
And when the hay cart came by, it was clear why it was fenced off. So that’s how we go to the pumpkin patch!
We went to line up and got on a hay cart. It was a nice ride around the farm on route to the pumpkin patch.
Our tour guide was very talented, he was telling us stories and was singing along the way.
There were Halloween themed decorations, I wonder if they light up at night.
The last stretch before getting to the pumpkin patch. It was quite a relaxing ride.
The hay cart drops you right outside of the pumpkin patch. There you will see rows and rows of pumpkins ready to be picked.
Most of the pumpkins were ready cut from the vine and were ready to be picked up.
There were so many of them. Most people picked their pumpkins for carving. It was difficult to pick the perfect pumpkin as you have way too many choices.
I took way too many photos of the pumpkins, and I forgot that I had to pick my pumpkin as well.
So I started looking. I was walking from one side of the field to another, then back to the right side and then to the left side.
Some got longer stems, some got bigger bodies.
I like those that are sitting on the soil. They stand out more as they look extra bright.
Isn’t this round like a soccer ball? We ended up picking one smallish one and one biggish one home. Wifie got creative and carved some neat looking pumpkins for Halloween.
