The Pumpkin Patch 2010

Another beautiful weekend at the White Fall Farm Pumpkin Patch of A.J. and Lisa Nuckols. You couldn't have asked for a better day. Obviously people realized that and they came out to enjoy the day in the Hay Bale Maze and Castle, Corn Maze, Pumpkin Hunt, Hay Ride, and more.
Tommy Castle and his son Grady were enjoying feeding the chickens.

Folks were having fun with the antigue corn kernel remover, picking from a variety of pumpkins and gourds, and taking Hay Rides.
The day was cool enough and warm enough, just what you would have asked for. The sky was clear and the leaves were changing to a full range of colors.
They have pumpkins and gourds like I have never seen. I had no idea that some of these varieties even existed.
The corn maze is a lot of fun. Joanne and I went through with Tommy and Carrie Castle and their children. Even in places where it isn't too tall, you still get turned around and have to retrack. Grady loved running ahead and running back to tell us that that wasn't the way to go.
Over the top of the sorgum you could see the Hay Bale Castle on the top of the hill..
I guess you've figured out that the corn maze is actually made from sorgum, but it doesn't change how much fun it is for the smaller kids or the adults.

The Castle family; Tommy, Carrie, Grady, and Max enjoying the Hay Bale Maze and Castle.
 This is a portion the Hay Bale maze which surrounds the castle, that you have to work your way through so you can then work your way to the top of the castle.

When the sun starts setting, the fire gets lit. Its a nice time to sit back, enjoy the warmth of the fire as the evening cools down. Its a nice time for friends to sit a talk.

 Another wonder filled day at the Pumpkin Patch. I really can't get too many of these.
