Pumpkin Patch in Okinawa, Japan



I miss fall! I miss fall even more because Chase missed his first pumpkin patch festivities. The hay ride, the leaves changing, wearing orange while getting your photo taken. Do you remember last fall? You can read all about it here. Joe had just left us for nine months and we were trying to stay really busy.



Back to the pumpkin patch. I was feeling really sorry for myself and Chase, and how his infant fall photos won't be with pumpkins. So sorry for him that I decided I would make my own pumpkin patch. I paid way to much for pumpkins that the grocery store ships in. I bought 3 very large ones that cost a lot. I then bought 3 medium ones, 5 tiny ones, 3 white ones, and some corn. There is no place to buy hay so I made do with my wicker basket. I also borrowed my neighbors 2 pumpkins.









They will have to do. This is all he will have and I will make myself be happy. Poor kid is going to be three before he ever sees a real pumpkin patch.
