We decided to try something new this year and bypassed the huge pumpkin patch on Sauvie Island in favor of the new one that opened here in Scappoose, Bernet Farms. I love not having to go as far to get pumpkins and supporting the local businesses, BUT it was a big flop! The hay ride wasn't running at the moment, not that there was that far to go but still, it's part of the pumpkin patch. And apparently they didn't plant their pumpkins soon enough because the pumpkins were nearly all still green! We took forever looking around and looking for good pumpkins and finally ended up with 2 mostly green ones and one decent orange one.
The kids chose huge pumpkins, so hauling them out was quite a chore.
