Mom and I did some fall and Halloween shopping at Pahl’s Market yesterday. Emma went there several times. Bailie and Olivia have also been there, but it was my first time. It is dog friendly and boy are there a lot of things to see and sniff. I was tired out when we got back into the car to go home!
We live super close to Pahl’s so Mom dashes over there for things every now and then. This time of year it is pumpkin time. I guess we are a bit late as there were not as many pumpkins I usual but there were still more than enough!
Not only do they have nice pumpkins, they have some tiny ones, weird and ugly ones, and different colored ones. Personally, I like a smaller, regular orange one.
The majority of pumpkins are inside right now, but there are quite a few outside as well. They have all the super sized ones outside for some reason.
Speaking of big pumpkins, can you imagine a pumpkin bigger than you are? I don’t have to because I found some. Mom would not even try to lift them. They are crazy big and there were some even bigger ones around too.
In one greenhouse, we found straw bales. Since I’m a Barn Hunt Champion, it is normal for me to climb on bales. Sadly, I only saw more pumpkins, no rats. That is when I said, “Rats!”
Halloween shopping in Minnesota has to include some Indian Corn. They have table after table of the stuff. Humans seem to like it for decorating, but I don’t see any use for it.
I came up empty in my quest to find that one great pumpkin. We bought a few small ones to bring to Gramma on the weekend for a little Halloween gift, but that was it. Really, they have so many pumpkins, I couldn’t choose just one anyway.
Only nine days to go until Halloween. Have you done your Halloween shopping yet? I think we are set and we have our costumes pretty much ready to go too.
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
