I captioned this photograph: I carried a…pumpkin on Instagram yesterday, but fear my Dirty Dancing homage fell on deaf ears. Still we had a bushel of fun at Eastmont Orchards: It is amazing the behaviour that a field of squash and the presence of a DSLR can induce in totally sensible and responsible grown ups.

It’s the start of Halloween season in America, and especially here in sort-of-rural New Jersey, where it seems that every few miles there is a farm offering a kind of combi harvest festival/Halloween/bucolic experience, featuring pumpkin patch picking, hay cart rides, corn maze wandering and, if you are lucky, orchards with gen-u-wine apple picking. And gen-u-wine unposed photos in wheelbarrows.

Apple picking is actually a lot more genuine than the pumpkin picking, which is more picking up than picking off a vine, with hundreds of already cut pumpkins spread out in a field.

We were nominally there not to frot, sorry frolic, with pumpkins, but to pick apples.

We got a little distracted by the idea of picking Brussels sprouts but the brassica smell drove us away seconds after we took this photo.

For those who aren’t interested in ‘picking’ a pumpkin, there are carts of squash and gourds for eating and for decorating at the checkout huts.

Hi Miss LLG, just a quick note to say your Dirty Dancing reference certainly did not go unnoticed! It definitely made me giggle when I read your post yesterday :)

Hope you are having safe and clearly fun travels!
Hi to P-bad (from your avid long time reader in Oz :)

That looks like ridiculous fun. I once again missed all of the summer fruit picking in the UK this year and I’m wishing for a field of pumpkins now!

Must admit I didn’t get the pumpkin joke either and was wondering why you’d phrased it like that!
These pictures make me happy, looks so much fun! x

Don’t worry, I was sniggering at the ‘I carried a pumpkin’ reference. Totally got it. Looks like you had a fantastic, fun-filled day. Thanks for sharing x
