I’m So Excited!

2 Jun

I really meant it yesterday when I said things are finally going to happen this summer!  It’s the first of the month, so that means it’s time for an update on what’s happening up north.  See that tractor coming.  I’m so excited!

We planted pumpkins today!  We borrowed an actual pumpkin planter, and hooked it up to my dad’s antique tractor, and then we planted!

By “we” I really mean my nephew, but I did pick up lots of sticks from where the tree stumps had been removed.  I did do something besides taking pictures (just not a lot).

We figure it’s just over an acre of space that will be solid pumpkin patch!

It is this long stretch that starts with the two trees (one on either side) and around the corner, stopping just before the third tree (to the far left).

I can hardly wait for October now!

Sharing with Song-ography.  This week, I chose the song, I’m So Excited! written by Dave Gibson. Really, I am!

    I can see it all coming together. Find someone with a pony sweep and you’ll be in business!

    • Teresa June 2, 2015 at 6:23 pm #

      We have lots of things planned! No ponies though.

    This is awesome — going to do a children’s pumpkin patch ???

      Hopefully, it will be a pick-your-own for the whole family to enjoy!

      It is fun to finally be making progress.

    Wow, great to have a dream coming into fulfillment! I love pumpkins! And don’t forget, the pumpkin seeds have great anti-inflammatory properties. I always have a package of these in my cupboard.

    • Teresa June 2, 2015 at 7:35 pm #

      Pumpkins are amazing. They are great for the goats too, but hopefully, I’ll sell them all. 😉

    Best wishes on the planting! That is exciting!

    • Teresa June 2, 2015 at 7:35 pm #

    This IS big news! Your plans are coming together just as you hoped. You will have such fun in October!

      We’re working on it. My nephew has been wonderful to help his old aunt in this venture.

    How exciting!!

  11. Pat June 2, 2015 at 8:42 pm #

    Looks like you had a beautiful day to plant pumpkins. How exciting to anticipate that field full of those orange globes.

  12. Jeanne June 2, 2015 at 11:52 pm #

    Excellent! I hope your “punkin patch” will do beautifully! It should look great there in that spot too.

    • Teresa June 3, 2015 at 7:18 am #

      My entire farm is beautiful, but this corner will be perfect for people to enjoy the farm while finding that perfect pumpkin.

  13. Margaret June 3, 2015 at 2:49 am #

    How exciting and it will be great for photographs.

    • Teresa June 3, 2015 at 7:19 am #

      Yes! We’re going to try to set things up for lots of photo opportunities and fun.

  14. Eileen June 3, 2015 at 4:42 am #

    Pumpkins, that is cool! I wish you a great pumpkin crop. Enjoy your day!

  15. Alica June 3, 2015 at 8:39 am #

    What fun! Will people come to pick their own…or will you sell them at market?

    • Teresa June 3, 2015 at 8:41 am #

      We’re looking at doing a pick-your-own.

  16. Texan June 3, 2015 at 9:22 am #

    I would love to do that! Just plant me a acre of pumpkins! I hope yours do really good!

    • Teresa June 3, 2015 at 12:43 pm #

      Thanks. I hope they sell well, and we’ll do it again (maybe even bigger) next year!

    I had no idea there was such a thing AS a “pumpkin planter”…I learned something new today! I’m so excited 🙂 🙂 🙂 Thanks for sharing at Song-ography!

    • Teresa June 3, 2015 at 12:44 pm #

      There’s a planter for pretty much every kind of seed. 😉 Thanks for hosting.
