when does your family hit up the pumpkin patch?

last year i think we did it the first weekend in october, and the pumpkin i carved was rotted before halloween, so this year we are probably waiting til the last weekend before halloween. i live in florida though so the weather conditions aren't exactly promising for carved pumpkins. i am looking forward to going though, my kids love picking out pumpkins!

  • We waited until the week of Halloween last year. There were hardly any pumpkins to choose from though. We are thinking of going next weekend or the weekend after that this year. So we'll have a better chance of finding the right pumpkin for carving.

  • We already went to the pumpkin patch, but we don't carve our pumpkins until a couple of days before Halloween. We have never had a problem with them going bad before Halloween.

  • We are going to go to the pumpkin patch in a week or so.

  • We'll go about a week and a half before Halloween - the last few years we've done them earlier and then we got a warm spell, the pumpkins were a mess before trick or treat.
