31 Days of Halloween: A Visit to the Tanaka Farms Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite Halloween traditions is a visit to our wonderful local pumpkin patch at Tanaka Farms! Tanaka Farms grows their own pumpkins and is one of those rare "pick-your-own" pumpkin patches where you can choose your perfect pumpkin right off the vine! Best of all, they are located just about 15 minutes from me in Irvine, California.

I try to make it to Tanaka Farms on the opening weekend of their pumpkin patch every year, with 2012 being no different. Mister Spooky and I were there bright and early their opening weekend to walk among the rows and rows of dewy pumpkins.

Check out my photos of the pumpkin patch below:

 I loved the twisty vine on this pumpkin!

 Until next year, Tanaka Farms!
