I decided if I was going to talk about West Texas cotton, I shouldn’t leave out West Texas pumpkins. You have your city-style patches, and then you have the real deal. This is one of those real deals north of town that we visited with the grandkids and AJ and Erin around Thanksgiving in 2008.



These are the seconds, the rejects that the grocery stores didn’t want. Aren’t they beautiful?  We wanted to take them all home but stopped when we had loaded 47 pumpkins, large and small.



A field of pumpkins is really something to see, and something most people have never had the opportunity to enjoy. So here you are.


And of course since Halloween was right around the corner, we rushed right back to the house and proceeded to turn some of them into jack-o-lanterns.
