Webb Ranch manager Deano Lovecchio spotted us soon after our arrival late on a Sunday afternoon at this year’s Pumpkin Patch. “We grew a lot more of our own pumpkins this year,” he said proudly. “We’re up to 30 acres.”

James on big pumpkinLike every year,  there’s an enormous variety of pumpkins in different sizes and colors — orange, red, white, green — as well as some gourds. (If you’re curious about the difference between a pumpkin and a gourd, both are members of the very diverse Cucurbitaceae family, which contains more than 100 genera and over 700 species, so we’re supposing they’re like cousins.)

A visit with the family to Webb is always more than just jack o’lantern shopping. The attractions include a Haunted House (top) and Jumpy House, both open daily. More activities are available on Saturdays and Sundays: hay rides (you go around the whole 30-acre growing field), train rides, pony rides, petting zoo, and pumpkin sling shot.

Of course, bring your cameras. There are quite a few big pumpkins that kids can perch upon.
