One of my absolutely favorite places in the world is the pumpkin patch! Every first weekend of October I head to opening of Tanaka Farms pumpkin patch in Irvine, CA. It's a vibrant working farm in the otherwise drab suburbia of Orange County (where I reside). They are open year-round, and besides their annual pumpkin patch they also feature lots of other events, including their summer watermelon tours!
Last weekend, Mister Spooky and I took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch at Tanaka Farms, and though it was a little warm we had a fabulous time! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and fields upon fields of pumpkins lay before us! What could be more grand?
And if you are in the SoCal area, I highly encourage you to check out the lovely Tanaka Farms! Plus, parking and entry are free! Check out their website for more!
