Decorating with Indian Corn

I saw this picture and immediately fell in love. It would be wonderful hanging on a front door, from a mantle, or from a porch railing. I think we’re going to have to make some of these to sell this fall at The Pumpkin Ranch. I hope you love them as much as I do!

We go through a lot of bales of straw here at The Pumpkin Ranch each fall. We sell a lot to customers, but we use the majority of our 600 bales to create fun! When you come out this fall and enjoy these bales to sit on, jump on, jump over….think of poor old Dave […]

5th Anniversary

I cannot believe it! This fall will mark our 5th anniversary as The Pumpkin Ranch. When I look back, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. When we started our kiddos were just 2 and 4 years old. Now, our oldest is about to turn 9! Last year she opened a candy shop […]

One more day…

“One more day of heat, I can do this.  One more day of heat, I can do this.  One more day of heat, I can do this.”  This is what I keep telling myself.  I know I’m not the only one ready for this heat to break.  It’s hard on all of us! But then […]

Benefit of Bees

This story was on my local, morning news feed.  So interesting!  We have bee hives here at The Pumpkin Ranch.  The bees work hard for us, pollinating our plants AND giving wonderful honey to sell to you!  This is an interesting read.

The Heat of the Moment

Does anyone remember the great (maybe not so great) song by Asia, “The Heat of the Moment?”  Ahhhh, the good old days!  I can’t seem to get that song our of my head these past 2 weeks.  Do you know why?!?!  It’s been blazing hot here, that’s why!  We’ve cooled down to 90-ish degree and […]
