Pumpkins take center stage in Menlo Park
Pumpkins were every where in Menlo Park this past weekend as families prepared for Halloween. One toddler spotted at Webb Ranch’s pumpkin patch thought he’d fallen into a field of “balls” — at least until he found one he liked and tried to pick up it up. Alas, this “ball” was a whole lot heavier than he’d thought it would be.
At the Farmers’ Market held Sunday mornings in downtown Menlo, Cozzolino Farms from Half Moon Bay had brought a truck load of their biggest and brightest pumpkins to sell to shoppers. They were shown along side the Farm’s swan gourds, which may be shapelier but a lot challenging to carve.
