Last week we went to the Hills Harvest Pumpkin Patch in Thornton.
They have a lovely little field that you can trapse through looking for the perfect pumpkin, or you can just jump out of your vehicle and chose from a nice assortment of pumpkins. They also have a spot for a photo opp.
For some reason...my kids were shy and wouldn't look me in the eye. I think it had something to do with the smiling scarecrow with the price tag still attached.
We traveled back in time to see what Mallory would look like in 1977.
I made the yummiest Corn Chowder over the weekend...here's the recipe!
Hill Harvest is one of the nearest pumpkin patches to the city of Denver. I researched many of them and if you don't want to drive a long ways...this is your best bet. They also have free hay rides Friday-Sunday, and have a little store with lot of other products such as honey, green chili, salsa and veggies. They had a nice assortment of apples and buckets of pie cherries.
