The Great Pumpkin Patch

This Thursday, I went to the Great Pumpkin Patch in Arthur, IL. with some other art students from my school, including the photography classes. This pumpkin patch is one of the largest in the Midwest and covers 200 acres. You can read more about it on their website.

There were tons of pumpkins that were already picked and ready to be bought. They also had a huge variety of squash. We didn't actually get any carving pumpkins, just a small one that was including in our large group admission. They also gave us coloring books! There were farm animals too, including an alpaca, llama, goats, chickens, geese, sheep and pigs. I think the chicken below looks very Halloween, almost like a spiderweb design.

This was taken in the "Miscanthus Meander" which is a very tall grass from Florida. 

There were several different mazes, including, of course, the maize maze (maize is basically the same as corn). There was also a maze made of hay bales, sunflowers, and broom corn. Then we explored the Children's Garden which was tucked away under a weeping willow tree. There were little streams and a bridge as well as a squash for every letter of the alphabet.

Thanks for reading! I love feedback, so please tell me what you thought of this post in the comments. On this field trip we went to an Amish Farm as well, and that post is coming soon!
