Working the Pumpkin Patch

Well we made it to the Pumpkin Patch, even though the California highway bumps, holes and just plain terrible roads tried really hard to keep us from getting here. Thank goodness we chose to do our final drive into the lot on a Sunday, otherwise the traffic would have been unbearable. As it was, the traffic for a Sunday was more than we expected but not too bad.


The lot location is in between some businesses and residential homes, not a bad area at all. We are setting up the Pumpkin Patch for our opening day on Friday the 1st. Pumpkins have been delivered...


Now we need to get these scarecrows stuffed and new heads put on them, situate the cut-outs figures...


Then, we have to decorate, create a maze with the hay bundles (still not delivered), pick up the animals, and tie up the cornstalks on the posts.



And, all the other fun stuff to make this the best damn Pumpkin Patch in Saratoga.

That last statement may be a little over the top but we are planning on having some fun.

I look forward to hearing about your experience. Our co-workers from this summer do both pumpkins and Christmas trees and rave about the job. I wasn't completely sold but it's something we might consider in the future. So tell all!
