The Pumpkin Patch

Theo and Natalie afloat in a sea of orange (top). Theo and the friendly white-haired man.

Henry David Thoreau wrote many great sentences. Here, in my opinion, is his greatest: "I'd rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion."

After our traditional Sunday breakfast at the Menlo Park Diner, the Clarks of New Jersey traveled to Giamarese Farm in East Brunswick, N.J., to pick a pumpkin for Halloween.

We picked a beauty – 19 pounds and shaped like an egg. We displayed our treasure on our porch, along with a brand new halloween sign we picked up at Home Goods in Woodbridge. The Halloween spirit lives at 56 Voorhees Place!

Note to editorial staff: The friendly white-haired man from the 2004 Pumpkin Patch pony ride continues to serve the community, expertly leading the Shetland Ponies around the little horse track. Can we get a picture of him up on the site? Thank you.
