Cucurbita spp. cvs. ....huge Pumpkin field at Butler's Orchards

This is a big Pumpkin Patch. I'm guessing 30 acres or more. A friend was playing bluegrass at Butler's Orchard's Pumpkin Festival. I haven't been there for many many years; there are some new features, some things have changed, and some are still the same. We have pictures of Max and Pete standing inside a painted plywood witch are over 15 years old and there she was still a photo-op. I guess it's a good thing that at least some children have a concept of where pumpkins and apples come from.

My name is Emma Beck and I work for Washington Flyer, a free travel guide for Washington D.C. and surrounding areas. (You might have seen our magazine in the racks at the airport!)

We're pulling together events to feature for our Sept. issue, one of which will be a blurb about Butler Orchard's Pumpkin Picking. Stumbled across your fantastic shots and would love to talk to you about using them in our publication!

If interested, you can reach me by email:

A big thank you in advance for your time!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
