Last Friday I took a short drive to this pumpkin patch. There weren’t any school buses in the parking lot. I parked and trekked out to the field. There was a group of pre-school children hunting down the perfect pumpkin.
These great Cinderella Pumpkins were stacked up for sale.
Big and round
I’m glad you grow
Upon the ground
If you grew up in a tree
You might just fall right
Down on me!
It was a gorgeous Fall day with fluffy clouds, crisp air, and sunshine.
I observed a group of Hispanics picking pumpkin blossoms in the patch. Being the wondering person I am I asked what they’d be doing with the flowers. They explained to me how they saute them with onion to use in their Quesadillas. They said they really enjoyed the taste of them. They also reminded me I should wash them first.
Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

Nothing says ‘fall’ like the pumpkin patch! We had many trips to pumpkin patches all over the country as the children went through elementary school and we moved around. I was probably the only Mum who wasn’t bored with the whole thing, as every pumpkin patch was new to me!
I have eaten pumpkin blossoms before. They are delicious. The ones I’ve had were battered and fried with bacon and shrimp. Good eating. I so want to see a pumpkin patch in person. Great photos.
Oh, how pretty!
You had the perfect day to visit the Pumpkin Patch! Did you try one of the blossoms?
Love those orange pumpkins against the blue sky. What a pretty day.
So pretty! I too would love to visit a pumpkin patch and pick my own pumpkin.
I have never seen a real live pumpkin patch. They sure are nice against a bright blue sky!
How interesting how they eat the flowers.
such great pictures Ellen…i love the contrast between the blue and the orange……gorgeous!
Such a glorious day… and all those GORGEOUS pumpkins… I like outings like that. I miss the sight of pumpkin patches and farms offering autumn fun–not much of here… *sigh*… This gave me a taste of home–thanks, Ellen :o) ((HUGS))
super header worthy pumpkin pixs and poetry to boot! Cinderella pumpkins are just so classy and I am wishing someone would make a poster of all the cool pumpkin types that are available now. Maybe we bloggers could team up to hunt them all down, I have white ones, pie ones and the warones.nes…
um..that warty ones. Kitten typing earlier.
Well now . . . eating pumpkin blossoms! I’ll have to tuck that idea away for next fall – too late now as we were hit by a killing frost the day before yesterday.
A gorgeous day is right! and gorgeous pictures too!!
Ellen, your photos are beautiful. I’ve never eaten pumpkin blossoms. What an interesting tid bit of information. laurie
Love those shots of orange and green and blue — such a happy fall scene! Pumpkin blossoms probably taste like zucchini blossoms, though I’ve had neither 😉
