Pumpkins, Gourds And Goats Oh My!

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, this weekend I went to the pumpkin patch at Ward's Berry Farm.  But they have a lot more than just pumpkins.  They are a working farm with tons of yummy produce for sale, a deli, a smoothie bar and they recently added cider donuts!  I bought some corn on the cob and it was SO good!

They also do a weekly farm share that I would love to take advantage of. . . if I lived closer and if I cooked.  Haha!

Anyway I thought I would share a few more photos and a funny goat story!

So many gorgeous colors. . . I loved all the pumpkins and gourds! If I were rich I would buy a ton of the unusual ones and decorate my whole apartment with them!

Aren't they so cute!?  It was feeding time so they were all pretty occupied eating hay and didn't really care about us.  Carter was trying to feed them his dead corn stalk which they quickly realized was not as good as the hay!

And now for the story you've all been waiting for (or not just go with it). . .

When we first got to the farm we quickly made our way to the pumpkin patch since nobody else was there and we wanted to beat the crowd.  We had to walk by this guy who was in a pen all by himself and for some strange reason he had climbed up on this fence before he even saw us.  He was so cute and friendly but as we got closer we realized he was feeling pretty happy (if you know what I mean).  Carter was quickly going to get a lesson in sex ed but he actually didn't even notice because the goat was too busy making out with Joana's hand.  Yup he was very friendly.  OMG you see it all on the farm! Haha!

And while we are on the topic and since I am oh so mature let me just say this is actually not the first time this has happened to me!  Once when I was at Sea World in San Diego many years ago I saw a very happy walrus.  Now that was a sight.  Then a few years ago after horseback riding in Ireland with my cousin her horse gave us a show.  She almost killed me when I got out my camera to take a photo.  Yup real mature.

Ok now that half of my blog post is about male animals getting hard ons I'll end this post there.

I promise tomorrow my post will be about much more interesting and sophisticated topics.  Please come back!


  1. Mother nature can be hilarious!

  2. Haha!! Poor goat was really happy. I took a picture on the side of the road of two horses and when I got home realized one had a stiffy. Totally had to crop it out. Haha!
