Martha Worthy

Unbelievable.
The Great Pumpkin Patch. In Arthur Illinois, Amish country.
It should probably be labeled The GREAT Pumpkin Patch. It's that big.
How big you ask? 60+ acres. And worthy of a trip for Martha S and her photogs.
I was impressed.


Displays of all kinds of gourds, pumpkins and squash. More than I ever knew existed. And artfully arrayed.

There was a large Noah's Ark artfully made of recycled wood with two by two squashes parading up the plank...
There was a small corn maze for children...
There was a sweet shop with seasonal favorites....
There was a little outdoor lunch area, grilling up corn on the cob and other yummy grilled food...
Pumpkin Ice Cream Stand!
Squash tasting booths!
Photo ops with wood cut outs...
An Amish run bakery!
Cute little wagon carts to place your fragiley squashers and pumpkins. I just had to fill my little green wagon to the brim with flattish pumpkins, white pumpkins, acorn squash, teeny gourds, preparing to make a keen pumpkin totem in my urns by the door....
So much! A delight for the senses!
Soggy previous weather (our weather was wonderful!) kept the pick your own fields closed and the hay rack rides still...
Never matter; the other opportunities held our interest superbly.
Kept our interest for nearly four hours. And we had no small children to bid us stay yet we did...
Enchanting....


Truly Martha Worthy....
