  • Both- we went to the punkin farm and did the hayride where we bought a pumkin, but also bought them from the store where they were only $1.99 each- it's hard to pass up a deal like that!!

  • There are about a million pumpkin patches around here, but we usually buy them at the grocery store because it is a lot less expensive.

  • My childrens grandpa would grow pumpkins for the entire neighborhood. Put them into the back of the truck and take them to the fire department to give away. So in order to solicit help from all the grand kids he let them pick whatever pumpkin they want and as many as they wanted (ONE each! was my limit amount because he would not limit the kids to their wantings) And because they got first pick that made them special so they'd help their old grandpa put the pumpkins into the truck and hand them out on give-away day. Great memories! So I guess my answer would be a patch! Its a great tradition even though grandpa is gone. They can tell stories of their g'pa to their children as they go to the patch to earn about how pumpkins grow and find a way to make the trip special to their families.

  • I usually get them from the store, but last yeara local church did a fun little pumpkin thing that was fun. This year i am thinking of going to a local farm that lets you pick them from the patch. Sounds like fun, especially now that we have a little one!

  • The pumpkin patch for the fun activities, and maybe a small pumpkin or 2. But I'd rather buy them from a pumpkin lot or grocery store. Much less expensive. I'm not paying $15 for a pumpkin I can get for $3.

  • There aren't any patches around here that I know of, so we get them from a store. I've been trying to find out if there is a patch around here, but no luck so far.
