It’s October and it’s a pumpkin bonanza month. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, cookies, cupcakes, latte, bread, cream cheese etc. Oh the cream cheese – I am not a cream cheese fan at all but pumpkin cream cheese (from Einstein’s) is just divine, I’m pretty sure I’ve had a pumpkin cream cheese bagel at least once a week. Pumpkin contains some great nutrients such as potassium, which can help regulate blood pressure and heart function. It taste good and it’s healthy – those are always the best foods.
So! Pumpkin month calls for pumpkin patches however in the time that I have lived in Colorado (a few years now!), I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch or celebration and the like but I’m going to change that this year as I am determined to make my first pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins. I’ve only know of some of the pumpkin patches around Denver by word of mouth or by driving past a few of them and apparently there’s one out East that is the best. I know there was a pumpkin festival in Botanic Gardens at Chatfield on the 9th and 10th of this month, I’m bummed I missed it but that’s just only the beginning of all things pumpkin. So in order to not miss any more opportunities, I have scavenged some pumpkin patches close to Denver.
