Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch little boy

I know it’s another Halloween pic but I couldn’t go this week without showing this sweet photo of my gorgeous little H with his ‘perfect pumpkin’, as he called it.

This was taken at the fabulous Willows Farm in Hertfordshire, a place we love to visit regularly.

Each year they have a huge field which they cultivate for pumpkins. The seeds are planted in May and by October they are ready to be harvested.

It’s a great place to visit all year but the Autumn half term at Willows is gloriously seasonal and there’s something very magical about going into this hidden field for my children so they can choose a pumpkin each.

We arrived at the patch the day before Halloween which meant many of the pumpkins had been picked already, so my kids really had to search….. It was rather late in the day and the sun was just starting to go down, making the search rather frantic but they absolutely loved the excitement of running all over the field trying to locate the biggest and best pumpkins they could find.

It was a lovely day and H looks so pleased with his choice!


  1. Great photo – not surprised you wanted to post it. Good to know too about a pumpkin patch in UK.

  2. Sounds like a plan for us to visit Willows Farm next year in search of pumpkins – what a great way to do it rather than a shop #magicmoments

  3. so cute!! we’ve not been to willows farm yet – keep meaning to! hopefully will go soon!

      There is always something going on, Christmas is also magical with ice skating (usually) and a Santa’s grotto xx

  4. Love this photo Carolynne, just adorable! Sounds like an amazing place to visit, I’d much prefer to get pumpkins from somewhere like this rather than a supermarket! It must look amazing! Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

  5. He does look really chuffed. You’d laugh if you saw the size of our two pumpkins!

  6. What a great photo! He looks so pleased with himself 🙂 Lovely thing to do. #WhatstheStory

  7. He looks so pleased with that pumpkin

  8. what a lovely adventure!! i love the fact you can actually go and pick your own!!

    thanks for linking up with #MagicMoments xx

  9. I’ve seen a few of these posts this week and it’s making me jealous that we didn’t make it to our local patch this year
