NM0011 – Pumpkin Patch

Rosa Linda

– Hello Friends!

I have to say I don’t know what’s more frustrating… the fact that my brain is so fried that I forgot to hit “publish” for the last episode and managed to not post any story at all (which means there have been no updates here for a month), or the fact that it took me two weeks to notice. So, dear viewers, please accept my sincere apologies for shortchanging you this month.

Still, despite my gross oversight, because it is almost Halloween I am going to go ahead and post the episode I was planning to post today (Pumpkin Patch) and then post the previous episode (Pinto Bean Fiesta) in two weeks. Confusing yes. But hopefully they both will not only entertain you, but will keep you smiling through this spooky holiday season!

So, for this week’s episode there are really two subjects; A pumpkin patch and a local daycare that took their kids there on a field trip.

The pumpkin patch is a very cool, working pumpkin farm in Moriarty, New Mexico called McCall’s Pumpkin Patch. Their website is: www.mccallpumpkinpatch.com

The daycare is Manzano Mountain Early Learning Center, or “Vicki’s House” in Tijeras, New Mexico. The Director, Vicki Burns, was kind enough to let me tag along and videotape the adorable 2, 3 & 4 year old kids while they were on their field trip.

I hope you enjoy the story and have a very happy and safe Halloween!

Lots of love,

Rosa Linda

  1. I think the goat feeding contraption is really funny. I wonder if the goats like being up that high? I went to this farm, and this video really captures the ‘vibe’ of the pumpkin patch!

  2. I love the opening of this episode. It’s very attention grabbing. I was playing it for myself & my husband heard it & he came over by me & asked, “can you start that from the beginning again?” Just the sound (in the tunnel) caught his attention & he wanted to see it. That farm looks like it’s a lot of fun. I really liked the looks of the giant pillow.
    By the way, I just was thinking the other day that it had been a while since I saw any podcasts from you. But then I thought, “Oh I’ve just been so busy that I’m confused”. Now I see I was right & I just wanted to let you know that I’m definitely enjoying your podcasts, ’cause I find myself missing them if I haven’t seen one in a while.

  3. This is a wonderful episode. I have been to McCalls Pumpkin Patch but not for a couple of years. The vides reminded me of the fun to be had there and I will certainly visit next year. Keep up the great stories.

  4. This was the first post that I’ve seen, and I’m mad at myself for not watching before. You had me from “At McCall’s Pumpkin patch, in Moriarty New Mexico”, your voice sounded great and grabbed my attention. I’ll be watching for updates… Oh, and I love how the logo moves every time the browser refreshes.

  5. Thanks to all of you that have commented. I have been lax about responding. Sorry for that.

    @Barb – Yeah, those goats are a HOOT! I have fond memories of going to McCalls with you.

    @Rebecca – You know, I debated for a long time whether to do that show open that way or not. From your comment I now know it was the right decision.

    And on the issue of the delay, I’m glad you are noticing when I miss one. It keeps me honest (and motivated)!

    @Liz – Thanks for checking it out. McCalls was so much fun. I really enjoy doing these agricultural stories. More on the horizon…

    @Dali & Aracelis – Thanks to both of you for watching the stories. Knowing you all are out there enjoying them makes it all worthwhile!

    And, by the way, Aracelis… you are the FIRST person to notice that the logo moves when you refresh the browser. It was a lot of work to figure out how to do that. Now it was ALL worthwhile! LOL!

    Lots of love to you all!
    Rosa Linda
