“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.” –Linus, It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
There’s nothing like visiting a pumpkin patch once the leaves begin to change from green to brilliant reds and golden yellow. It’s also a perfect annual tradition for the littles when they visit on a fall weekend.
We have three pumpkin patches that are nearby, but the newest pumpkin patch to pop up was the only one open when we ventured out after a delicious breakfast of cinnamon roll waffles and buttermilk ghost waffles.
Getting to experience one of my favorite seasons with my sister and nieces is always something to look forward to, and now that Charlotte is two and Cecileia is about to turn four I can’t wait to show them all of my favorite spots both new and old.

Last year Charlotte was just starting to walk when we visited a pumpkin patch at the Methodist church in old town Fort Mill, and this year she was able to run around the Tega Cay pumpkin patch in search of her favorite pumpkins.
“Dear Great Pumpkin, I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you will bring me lots of presents.” — Linus, It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
