It is October which means time for Halloween, and all of its ghoulish traditions. Whether, they are smiling, frowning, or just looking scary, pumpkins are the sign of the season.Instead of getting a pumpkin from the grocery store, consider heading to one of the many pumpkin patches in the Denver Metro Area. It is very hard to be bored at a pumpkin patch, there are so many great activities. For the younger kids, you may find a straw maze which challenges beginners. If you are looking for a more adventures challenge, try a corn maze. Filled with lots of different paths, this is difficult for everyone, even adults.It isn’t all easy being a pumpkin farmer. The pumpkin seeds have to be planted in late May. Cottonwood Farms, in Boulder County, buy’s some of their seeds, and use some of the seeds from the previous year’s harvest. If there is a chance of a frost, all of the pumpkins have to be brought into the shed, or covered out in the field. “Make sure to bring your pumpkins inside if it is going to get less than 32 degrees, or else they will turn to mush” says Amy Condon, the owner of Cottonwood Farm.”My favorite thing about being a pumpkin farmer is all the kids. I love to give kids an agricultural experience” said Amy. Cottonwood farm is a great place to go if you don’t already have a pumpkin. You can find it on 1536 75 th St. in BoulderCounty.
