Pumpkin Season 2016 in Wedgwood

Although another neighborhood of Seattle claims to be the Center of the Universe, the Wedgwood neighborhood has a center of activity called The Gathering Place at the Hunter Tree Farm.  In October 2016 the site has once again been transformed into the Pumpkin Universe.

Now comes the transition to autumn and the annual pumpkin sales.  In the year 2016 the pumpkin patch is a fundraiser for Scout Troop 151.

The pumpkin patch is open at Hunter’s each Saturday and Sunday, 10 AM to 6 PM from October 8th through October 30th, 2016.

    What an excellent fall activity. With that many pumpkins all in one place, have there ever been reported sightings of the headless horseman?

  2. You are too funny. I hadn’t thought of that story in years — I think today’s kids may not know about it. There are more modern scary stories but in Wedgwood we only do fun stuff — pumpkins are considered an appropriate decoration for the season! We will have trick or treat in the Wedgwood business district on Halloween, with volunteers who will serve as crossing guards at intersections. It’s all in good fun.

    I like the idea of having crossing guards. That’s a really nice touch. Last year we had almost no Trick-or-Treaters in West Seattle due to the weather. We had to bring entire bags of candy into work. It took weeks for the staff to go through it!

  4. I sure hope it does not rain on Halloween. People will still come out in the rain for Wedgwood’s business district trick-or-treat, though, no matter what.

  5. I always enjoyed taking the kids to the pumpkin patches when they were little!

  6. You mean, you have stopped taking the boys to the pumpkin patch? Why???? You can still go. They will not “card” you for being older!

    I’m glad you posted about this because I wouldn’t have known otherwise. I went on Saturday and luckily the sun was shining so I got some decent photos of all that beautiful fall orange.
