Poor Linus. He never understood that the Great Pumpkin doesn’t visit you…. you visit the Great Pumpkin. And we happen to know that the Great Pumpkin lives in Half Moon Bay, California and spends most of its time showing off its best creations at Farmer John’s Pumpkin Farm.
And it is a farm, not a “patch”. “Farmer John” Muller and his wife Eda run the best pumpkin farm in the Bay Area. John is tight with the Great Pumpkin and has more pumpkins, squash and gourds than just about anyone. Designers and restauranteurs join the masses to visit his farm every October and enjoy all the goodies. Thousands of pumpkins in immesurable colors, sizes and shapes (and flavors- some of these pumpkins are very tasty). And good people, too. With the help of Jon and Eda, the Great Pumpkin manages to host hundreds of disadvantaged school kids and give them pumpkins and time on a real farm. A kind and warm spirit is all around you at Farmer’s John’s. If a farm has a soundtrack, this one has lots of giggles and laughter. So thanks
John and Eda Great Pumpkin! Here are a few photos of our “haul”….
