Harvest Time at the Church Farm

We signed up to take a few rows at the Church Farm last year, and learned a lot — considering it was our first time trying anything of the sort. One thing we learned was that it doesn't take very many pumpkin seeds to get a lot of pumpkins. We planted two seeds and the final count was 16 pumpkins!

While the kids were not always excited to go weed — especially since the weeds were taller than they were — they were very happy to help harvest our bumper crop of future jack-o-lanterns.

Off to the fields...

Pumpkin carrying is not for the weak...

...or easily distracted!

Time to take them home!
