Lumpy Pumpkin and Hartland: The Traditions Continue

You may remember our Lumpy Tree saga from last Christmas- both when we got it (click here) and when we found its lovely little gifts (click here). Well, today we found Lumpy Pumpkin at the pumpkin patch! I was decidedly more happy to find Lumpy Pumpkin than I was to find and accept Lumpy Tree into my Christmastime life.

It's Lumpy Pumpkin!
For many years now we've been going to Hartland Orchards to pick produce. Brian and I first went when we were dating to pick apples and have been going back ever since. Today was a beautiful day to go pumpkin' fetchin' after a solid week of rainy days. We took my brother and his girlfriend and hit the pumpkin patch and their fall festival. But before I share pictures from today I wanted to go look at some past pictures at Hartland. Here is one case where my picture organization pays off. Finding these pictures was easy!
