Hi Mommas! We ventured out to Tanaka Farms last week to find JR’s first pumpkin and it was a blast! Tanaka Farms is a family owned and operated farm in Irvine, California that offers fun activities all year round, such as, Strawberry and Watermelon tours during the Spring and Summer months, the pumpkin patch and activities during October and a Christmas tree farm during the holidays. It was pretty warm and definitely crowded but, worth the trip down south.
We walked around a bit, watched the pumpkin cannon shoot off a few rounds, took a peek at the corn maze and then headed home because baby boy (and Daddy) were overheating and hungry. I definitely want to make this a tradition and hope we have a little more stamina next year!
Do you and your family visit the pumpkin patch during October? What do you do with all of the pumpkin seeds? Share your roasting recipes in the comments below!
