Visiting the pumpkins at Garsons PYO

We thought we would jump on the pumpkin band wagon.  Having seen all of the gorgeous photos other bloggers have been sharing on Instagram, we headed off to Garsons PYO near Esher, Surrey.  I love Autumn and the beautiful colours it brings and pumpkins are by far one of the most autumnal things in my eyes.  I haven’t ever picked my own, so I was quite excited as I do love visiting a PYO farm!

Oliver’s obviously still too young to know what’s going on, but he loved the pumpkins! We sat him on the ground and he spent ages climbing over them and bashing them all with his hands. I think he loved the colour because when we finally chose one he wouldn’t stop reaching out to grab it and kept hitting it! The only problem is trying to get a nice photo of an 8 month old who is constantly moving, lots ended up a bit blurry because he got really excited!

I can’t wait for the next few years when he will have a bit more of an understanding what is going on and I’ve decided we will make it a bit of a tradition.  This year I went with my mum and sister (as she was home for the weekend) but next year I might try and drag Stu along too (even if he isn’t a fan of Halloween!).  I was surprised that picking my own pumpkin was actually cheaper than buying one in the supermarket, I know it isn’t a giant pumpkin but it was perfectly round, which is what I always want in a pumpkin.  Next I need to decide what to carve onto it, any suggestions?

    I really need to do this, I am dying to try it and still haven’t gone! Gah! We have had 2 pumpkins so far, we always start when they appear in supermarkets so I can make lots of yummy pumpkin seed snacks and Gray gets to carve several different designs, we tend to have one a week until Halloween itself! xx #kcacols

      Ah well, it’s supporting local businesses I suppose and it’s a free day out anyway! I must say ours wasn’t that big, only because I wanted a perfectly round pumpkin and it was the only one I could find!

    This is a great, I really want to go to a pumpkin patch when my daughter is a bit older. Maybe next year. That looks like a good sized pumpkin you’ve chosen there. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x
