Earlier this year it was brought to my attention that not only has my boyfriend never celebrated Halooween, he has also never carved a pumpkin before! I mean ... what has he even been doing all his life? Well obviously I had to change that so we headed off to our nearest Pick Your Own farm to choose the very best pumpkins for him to carve. I've actually never been to a pumpkin patch before, we've always just gone to the supermarket, but as this was his first time I wanted it to be a bit more special.
When we got there it was quite busy and I was a little worried that maybe all the good ones would be gone because it was already edging so close to Halloween. However, when we rounded the corner we saw 3 enormous pumpkin patches and I was reasssured that we would be pretty spoiled for choice ... and we were. The original plan was to just pick 3, one for me, my sister and him ... we ended up leaving with 8 which are now precariously stacked in my kitchen!
Next monday expect a post full of really badly carved pumpkins because we are going crazy!
