Celebrating Fall WITH Pumpkins at Fall City Farms

You might have heard about our trip to the farm last week that ended without pumpkins going home with us.  The farm we visited didn’t have a patch, so we oped to venture to another farm on the Western side of the Cascades a couple of days later.

I decided to make this another “naptime roadtrip“, so while Bergen snoozed away in the backseat on the way to the farm, I enjoyed the fall colors that have popped up here in the Seattle area.  I even extended the drive since we arrived earlier than expected, allowing me to take in more oranges, reds, and yellows lining the country roads, and for Bergen to get a little more rest.

Since we were visiting on a weekday, some of the bigger happenings, like concerts and hayrides, were not going on.   However,  that also meant we were some of the only folks around, which was just fine by me as it was just the two of us for this adventure.

First up was a visit with all the animals that call the farm home.  This time we saw, turkeys, goats, and (especially vocal) cows.  The turkeys were particularly curious of Bergen!

On to the main event, we went in search of three pumpkins.  As you can see, this farm had the patch I was looking for with pumpkin after pumpkin in all stages of color nestled among brittle vines and leaves.  Bergen is on his way to becoming a walker, but still chose crawling as his mode of transportation to explore.

We found our three pumpkins:

1. Perfectly round

2. Tall and crooked

3. Mini

  1. I like all colors, but it’s finding the ones with the unusual stems that are best. Bergen crawling with the pumpkins, too cute!
