Last weekend we went pumpkin picking! We go to a place near Warrington called Kenyon Hall and it has amazing fields full of different sized pumpkins plus a little farm shop where you can buy local produce. It really makes me love Autumn.

  2. Oh my, I never even thought of trying to find pumpkin patches in the UK! I didn't think they were grown here. Mmm, this has my mouth watering for risotto, pumpkin pie & soup!

  31. Love the pics! I never thought of going pumpkin picking myself either, never even imagined that you could. I spent ages picking one in Tesco only for it to rot away a few days later before I even got to carve it!
