Stocking up on pumpkins

Time’s running out, and so are the pumpkins. Pumpkin patches can be overwhelming for the little ones, but one block east of South Congress is a patch set up on an intimate scale that keeps everyone smiling while those pictures are taken. Every year there are more scarecrows in the backdrops for photographs, so someone must be an expert at making them. Wagons are available for ferrying the larger cucurbits to a vehicle, although we saw a wagon employed to carry a load of small pumpkins, not too heavy for the little boy pulling them along. Make sure you’re ready for the national holiday of Austin, which reaches its peak observation tomorrow evening. Look for the signs at Grace United Methodist Church, 205 East Monroe. It’s all for a good cause, and a trip to the pumpkin patch combines very well with one to the H-E-B on South Congress, where early voting is in progress.
