Show Us Your Great Pumpkin

This weekend is a hot one for Halloween pumpkin patches and Patch wants you to share a photo of your top pick with us!

There's just something about going out and picking up a pumpkin. 

Do you go to a store here locally? Whole Foods has a huge display. There's also Safeway, Trader Joe's and Nob Hill. Or do you go pick one from a pumpkin patch?

Local schools are offering residents a chance to both help their local schools AND pick up a pumpkin. The Campbell Patch Mom Squad has a pretty comprehensive list of places to go.

So when you go out, grab your smartphone and snap a few shots of the winning pumpkin, the one that will look perfect on your stoop, front porch, or yard and share it here with us!

To start things off, there are a few pics of the various pumpkins and gourds at Whole Foods.

This is my FAVORITE time of year. Please share pictures with me of your pumpkins, carved or not. I love orange (on pumpkins, the Detroit Tigers and the SF Giants)!

I uploaded a couple of photos of the pumpkins I grew at the Cupertino Community Garden!

Oooh, thanks Pam!

The two on the counter are practically a perfect shape! Did you have to turn them regularly to get them to be so nicely shaped?

No, I didn't do anything, other than I put some straw under them to avoid contact with the dirt. I'm showing off their best sides in the photo!
