Our Last Days on the Pumpkin Patch

They were quite interesting…

The turkey laid an egg…the pig ate it and tried to eat the turkey too!

Business was booming and we were non-stop selling pumpkins.

It took us only hours to do what we needed to do to shut down our part of the patch, so we were able to leave a day earlier than the original plan.

All in all, we had an interesting time, we learned so much about ourselves. If we had to do it over again, we would, as we said it was a fantastic learning experience. We spent many long hours creating a nice environment for children to enjoy themselves and parents to honor that with some respect…we did not receive that from many of the parents or from the owner. He believes that losing a few pumpkins is worth it, if it brings in the volume of people he is looking for and over disciplining children could lose him some business. We understand his philosophy, but we do not agree with it. We would consider working at another pumpkin patch in the future, if only we could set some rules for destruction by the children or just selling pumpkins would be ideal, dealing with the other nonsense is not for us.

All of our photos from the patch are now downloaded to our Picasa Web Albums, be sure to check them out!
