Pumpkin Picking Time

September  bring the start  of Autumn with warm days, cooler nights and colorful leaves. Just the right time for Pumpkin Picking. It’s become an annual tradition in our family to have a all out pumpkin blitz. This weekend (Sept 15, 2012) we head to Roba Family Farms in North Abington Township, PA to get some 300-500 pound pumpkins. The following weekend (Sept 22, 2012) is the Cooperstown Pumpkinfest in historic Cooperstown, NY where the giant pumpkin weigh-offs are held. Then it’s off to Turks Farms in King Ferry, NY to explore their pumpkin patches and gather up any where from 100-400 jack-o-lantern sized pumpkins. That’s just the start of the Halloween fun
