The Pumpkin Barn

Lucy and I made a quick stop at

The Pumpkin Barn–I mean how could I resist, two of my favorite things!

This beautiful property is located,

just a few blocks from the University of Minnesota, Mankato.

Katy & Dave Wortel–sell pumpkins, gourds & more.

We arrived just a few minutes before they closed for the evening.

Pumpkins on the hay wagon, just out of the field.

Simple pumpkin displays
The deer were grazing in the pumpkin field!

The pumpkins are carefully selected and displayed on weathered pallets.

What a perfect place to pick out a pumpkin–or lots of pumpkins!

Today in the garden

This pumpkin deserved a photo shoot this morning.

Then it appeared.  Do you see it?

Here, I’ll get a little closer for you.
