On Sunday, we visited Kenyon Hall Farm, which is just over half an hour away from Liverpool on the M62 and is a little farm that we've been going to for a few years now. In the summer, we go strawberry and raspberry picking there, then in the Autumn they open up the pumpkin fields. Unfortunately, this year has been a poor harvest because of bad weather, so we didn't have as much choice as other years. They were all just pretty much average size, rather than some whoppers we've had other years. I am always fond of the little baby pumpkins anyway so I wasn't too bothered.
It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon after a really cold foggy morning in Liverpool. The farm shop there is really great now too, I could have easily spent so much money on strange vegetables that I don't know what to do with. Also, so many jams and conserves! I definitely recommend Kenyon Hall for a day out in the north west, it's right near the M62 and M6 so easy to get to by car. I'm currently now looking at their Christmas catalogue and getting so excited for pigs in blankets. Meanwhile, I ought to focus on more pertinent tasks like what to carve into my pumpkin! I was thinking maybe an owl? Anyone else have any ideas?
