It’s Fall y’all, therefore it’s time to plan your great pumpkin adventure. So grab your PSL, check out our Pinterest Board for pumpkin carving ideas, and let’s get to it. Here are our Top 5 Picks to Get Your Pumpkins:
1) FOR THE SLACKER PARENTS:
We totally get it – busy lives, kids, soccer and more. Who wouldn’t want to spend the weekend in traffic only to arrive at the farm in a muddy bog while your toddler is screaming because the stem on their pumpkin broke off and the baby needs a diaper change and everyone is STARVING!
We got you! Head over to the our very own “in-city” Hunter Farms to let the kids frolic in the manageable sized pumpkin parking lot to their heart’s content. The perfect opportunity to quickly grab your pumpkins and head to your next soccer game in Poulsbo. Enjoy!
PS: while you’re there, consider purchasing a pumpkin to put in the donation box for children to decorate that are receiving services from Ryther Center.
