Too Many Pumpkins

Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White, Megan Lloyd

This is one of my absolute favourite children’s books to read this time of the year.

It’s a touching tale about a woman who hates pumpkins so much she can’t even stand to look at them. Her world is turned upside-down when she discovers them growing on her own front lawn!

This book gets my kids excited to make our annual trip to the farm to pick out our very own special pumpkins. Here in Ottawa, we are lucky enough to have several pumpkin patches at these locations:

J.C. Orchards: 2726 Moodie Dr. at Fallowfield in Barrhaven,

Millers’ Farm and Market: 6158 Rideau Valley Dr., just south of the village of Manotick.

Proulx Sugarbrush and Berry Farm: 1865 O’Toole Rd. in Cumberland, near Innes and Trim roads.

Saunders Farm: 7893 Bleeks Rd. in Munster south of Fallowfield Road.

Valleyview Little Animal Farm: 4750 Fallowfield Rd., west of Cedarview Road.

But if you can’t make it out to a pumpkin patch, Ottawa’s Byward market is another great destination for choosing that special pumpkin.

At the CCPRN office we have many Fall and Halloween related dies for the die cutter including pumpkins, witches, haunted houses, ghosts and more! Of course our bulletin board is always filled with craft inspirations too so be sure to swing by and check them out!
