Monday's Blog Post: Pumpkin Picking


Last year whilst I was at work, my Mum and Brother went pumpkin picking in Upminster, Essex and I must admit, I was a bit jealous! I've never been to a pumpkin patch before but I feel like it's the new thing so I wanted to go and experience it for myself this year. Plus, I feel like it's nice to pick your own instead of getting one from the supermarket.


I don't normally do much for halloween, so this was my way of celebrating the time of year and I thought it was an exciting thing to do especially with my little cousins.


Sunday came round quick & we'd planned to go to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins before halloween tomorrow. It seemed like all of a sudden yesterday the temperatures dropped drastically so it was pretty cold over the field despite there being bright blue skies.


We grabbed one of the few wheelbarrows floating around and set off to pick the best pumpkins. When I say the best pumpkins, my aim was actually to find the most peculiar one, hence the small green one I picked up. I was pretty surprised at how many people were actually there considering you can buy the pumpkins from supermarkets for sometimes half the price.


I felt like pumpkin picking was more about the atmosphere and spending time with family apposed to going to collect a pumpkin. It was a nice afternoon strolling through the fields and watching my Brother and cousins attempting to lift the biggest pumpkins they could find. Halloween has come round so quick so if you don't manage to visit a local pumpkin patch by tomorrow, then you always have the supermarkets!
