Clancy's Pumpkin Patch
Last night after work I went to Clancy's Pumpkin Patch with my friend Jessie (we carpool to the East Bay sometimes for work - a way to be environmental and social, done!). Anyway, tucked into the Inner Sunset district, it's so far my favorite pumpkin patch in the city.
Aside from looking at the array of pumpkins, half the fun is watching parents get that just-right shot of their kids at the patch. As they've just arranged their children perfectly atop the pumpkin pile and as they go to snap the pic, that's when the little ones fidget, cry or fall off - often the older sibling keeping stone-still with their peace sign pose. It was nearing night fall when we arrived (can you even believe how short these days are getting?) so we scrambled to find the perfect pumpkins for carving. There were so many to chose from! There was a variety of shades:
some all the same color:
and of course there was that perfectly orange one that I always admire:
After we met our match at the patch, we took them home to carve! More to come...
By the way, things are going very well with the pumpkin bread...mmm.
