The Pumpkin Patch, which I was reliably informed lay claim to over one thousand pumpkins, was set up so that families could choose and design their own pumpkin, before dropping it off to be perfectly cut out by a team of hard-working experts.
Next it was design time. Just look at the concentration.
Then, whilst someone else did all the hard work we got to wander around the stunning gardens and meet the scarecrows that had been lovingly created by others over the weekend.
Some of them were incredibly life like too.
.... leaving any misbehaving children behind of course.
What do you mean that's not what they're used for?
