The Pumpkin Patch - 2013 ed.

There's a pumpkin patch every year up at Valley Star Farm - they're a Page County Grown member, which is great, but I love to go by there and check out all the varieties of pumpkins for sale.

When we're lucky enough to have visitors with us during the fall, we'll take them to it.  This year, my nephew Brett was up for a visit so we went by there to check things out.  Brett went with us a few years ago too, so a repeat visit for him.

We didn't check out the corn maze this year, just a few snaps of everything.  They had the pesky goats again this year, and Mary bought a bunch of decorative gourds for the annual fall tableau - there'll be a future post.
Lots of varieties, including those banana squash.

Speaking of Page County Grown, there's a bike ride this weekend that honors it:  the Page County Century. The course is designed to ride by the farms - there is a quarter-century, half-century, and century ride.  Don't misunderestimate the distances - that translates to 25, 50 and 100 miles, respectively.

It's the first year for this one and I hope it comes off great - I'll be volunteering, but don't know my role yet.
