The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch

Two Saturdays ago, we stopped by the Great Glass Pumpkin Patch in Palo Alto where there were 8,000 pumpkins for sale. I had been to the glass pumpkin sale that happens annually at MIT back in Boston and I had thought it was just limited to that. But, to my great surprise, glass pumpkins have an even larger presence. There were two glass pumpkin sales on the same day- the one in Palo Alto and another in Los Gatos. We chose the Palo Alto one since it was closer.

There were so many beautiful pumpkins. I love the blue one in the front.

They had several different displays for the pumpkins beyond just lying on the grass

This was our personal favorite- but of course it was the most expensive at about $700. Needless to say that we didn't buy it.

We were surprised by the popularity of these pumpkins- the purchase line was HUGE, even extending beyond the switch backs they had put up and people had their baskets full of them. It was fun for us just to browse :-)
