Have a Pumpkin Palooza at These 10 Abilene Area Pumpkin Farms
Yes indeed, Fall is here and I love it. The month of October and Halloween are among my favorites. To me, you just don't get the full effect of the season without making a trip to a pumpkin farm. Pumpkins go hand in hand with this time of year. Pumpkins along with other gourds are perfect for Fall decorating. You're also missing out if you don't roast up some pumpkin seeds. But, perhaps the most loved part of the pumpkin throughout the season is the delicious pies they make.
Another tradition that many families take part in is the carving of pumpkins into Jack-O-Lanterns. I remember growing up, we'd have a fun family contest for the best-carved pumpkin. Let's face it, what's Halloween without Jack-O-Lanterns? The history of Jack-O-Lanterns tied into Halloween goes back a long time.
There are many choices in Abilene to get set up with pumpkins, gourds, and more. I've scouted out some of the best ones in the area. Look below to see which ones are near you or visit more than one.
