Annoyingly, pumpkin fields are surrounded by, well fields. Without a car it’s damn hard work to get to one. Even if you manage to find one nearby, you’d would have had to have struggled on public transport there (and back with your haul!).
Before we got the car, I’d written off visiting a pick your own pumpkin patch as something we couldn’t do. Last year, it wasn’t until the end of pumpkin season that I realised that a road trip was in order. I spent the year eagerly awaiting my favourite season before roping in my partner and some friends and off on a road trip we went!
Whilst Ziggy was more interested in sniffing the long grass and looking off into the distance in that majestic sighthound way, Daisy had a great time picking her own squash, lifting it out of the wheelbarrow every time one of us humans returned it.
I’d definitely recommend visiting a pick your own pumpkin field as a simple and cheap day out. Our whole haul cost a mere £7 and despite the mud, I had a fantastic time photographing the dogs. Hopefully next Autumn will see us back at the pumpkin patch, mud or no mud!
