Picking the Perfect Pumpkin :: Heiser Farms

Posted on | Sunday, October 18, 2009 | 3 Comments

Matt and I had a lovely time visiting Heiser Farms in Dayton Oregon on Sunday. We have made it a tradition to pick our own pumpkins each year, and this would make it our 8th time together picking pumpkins and our 3rd time at Heiser Farms. Last year and the first year we were dating, we went to the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island, which is also fantastic, but we wanted to stick closer to home this year. We may still go to the haunted corn maze on Sauvie Island next week... but we shall see!

So many to choose from. Normally, we go the weekend before Halloween and everything has been picked over, but this time around, it was really hard to choose!




Too warm for a jacket...


Still looking...



This one was lovely... but the grass is always greener.... have to keep looking...


We have a couple winners!

Autumn is here!

I was finally smart this year and wore some rubber boots (Hunter boots from gilt groupe!).

Look! That's us a few years ago!

Last year, someone stole my pumpkin off our front porch, so we're keeping them indoors for now... maybe I need a few back-up pumpkins? There's still time before Halloween!

    I always love how bright and clear your pictures are, what kind of camera do you use?

    Hey Regina!

    Thank you for the photo compliment! I'm currently using a Canon EOS 40D. I love it. I really had to save my pennies for it. I purchased it over a year ago and it is humming along just fine. I am using the stock lens that comes in the kit... but I'm trying to save up for a better one. Oh... 99% of the time, I dont' use flash and have it on the manual setting. A tripod helps too when I am in the mood to lug it around. I hope this helps!!! :)

    What great pictures! I was planning an event at Heiser farm (in their barn). It fell through due to funding, but it is such a lovely location. I hope I can plan a future event there. Kristi Heiser is such a doll.
