Pumpkins and Pheasants

24 Sep

The pheasants are still hanging out in the pumpkin patch.  I have the feeling they aren’t going to like weekends in October.

At least I hope they don’t.

My biggest fear is that nobody is going to show up.  My second biggest fear is so many people show up that I sell out in the second week.

(Sorry for the poor quality pictures. I wasn’t expecting them and didn’t have time to change settings on the camera.)

    I think you are thinking just as every new business manager thinks. I wish you the best and hope for success. Do pheasants eat pumpkins? I like pheasant, tastes kinda like chicken – lol!

      Thanks, Sharon. I have to say, I’ve only fixed pheasant once, and I didn’t even try it. I just hope hunters don’t hunt by my pumpkin patch when kids are around. LOL

    Hoping only the visitors you want show up on the weekends. 🙂 It’s your first pumpkin patch, a learning experience. If all goes well, word will get around. Wishing you all the best!

      I like that idea. I would probably look for a wholesale seller to haul more in.

    Sorry to say; but I do hope for you to sell out within the 1st two weeks! Less pressure! 🙂

      Mo. I’d freak trying to find more pumpkins. Selling out on the last day would be ideal. 😉

    Ooh my! I think your biggest problem might be with the hunters. I certainly hope not, though. Just try to not worry!

      I don’t think it will be a problem. The hunters won’t have any success near my pumpkin patch once we’ve scared all the pheasant away for the day.
