The Pumpkin Patch at Rock Creek Farm

We went to the Pumpkin Patch.

We walked around the field. We picked up pumpkins and brought them home.  I, Zeb the Duck, Soapy Smith Duck, Pumpkin Duck and our moms visited the pumpkin patch in Broomfield, Colorado, just a little northwest of Denver.

Rock Creek Farm has over 100 acres of pumpkins for you to choose pumpkins.

There are several different fields. Soapy’s dog, Steve, went with us.

Steve is heading for the pumpkins.   Many of the pumpkins are still growing on the vine. When we came to the farm, we were given this pumpkin saw.   We ducks are sitting here guarding the pumpkin saw.

After the pumpkins were picked and put in the trunk, we visited the corn maize.   There are different corn maizes of different lengths.   Zeb and Soapy want this longer one of 4.5 miles. Pumpkin Duck wants a shorter one, 1.7 miles.

This farm is really kid friendly.  Human kids 5 years and younger can go in the maize for free.   These picnic tables are near the entrance to the maize.

Hay and straw everywhere

That was not so much fun for us.   The moms thought it was really funny.   The human kids can play here

on the slide and in the bouncy house.   Before leaving, we go to the booths to pay for our pumpkins. We also bought pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles on top. Water was also purchased. Steve was thirsty after the pumpkin patch, so she drank most of the water we brought. Look at all the different types of gourds and stuff they grow here.

So much to see and purchase if you want

This is a great place. We hope you visit the pumpkin patch this week. There are still hundred of pumpkins, but they are going fast. Visit www.RockCreekFarm.com    for more information.

It is a good thing that they are big and bright colors.   Humans can easily find and pick them.   Look at these bales of hay.

Zeb and Soapy are on the ground in front of this hay.

Just to show you how big they are, the yellow spots on the ground are us, Zeb and Soapy.   Hope they do not fall.

We hope you visit a pumpkin patch this October.   This is a nice one, but if you don’t live here, visit one near you. They are fun!

Autumn fun!
