Happy last day of summer!  It was a gorgeous day in the northland and we decided to take the scenic route down to Rice Lake to do some shopping and have lunch.  Stopped at Farm and Fleet, the grocery store, had Mexican for lunch and then went to Bargain Bills for some scrapbook supplies.  On our way back to the cabin we took a different scenic route and did a quick turn around when we saw this sign along the road.

And then there was this sign at the end of the road.

So we parked and went to check out the Great Pumpkin Patch.

There were a lot more pumpkins out there than appear in this picture.  Some were still green but the lady told us they would contine to turn orange after being picked.

We each picked one and loaded them in a wagon.  You can see that they're good size pumpkins.  Now to find put how much they'll cost.  The guy said none were more than $10.

The prices are determined by the height of the pumpkins.  The big one was $4 and the flatter one that I liked was $2.  Unbelievable!  We bought a couple squash too...for $2 each.  

I passed up the chance to take home a free kitten.  Molly would probably run away from home if we did that!

As we were leaving we were really glad we turned around and stopped for the opening day at The Great Pumpkin Patch.

I love reading of your adventures. Nice pumkins and the prices are cheap! Molly may want a companion. But kittens can be annoying for a grown dog.
