The Perfect Pumpkin
In the spirit of all things Fall I decided I wanted to go to a pumpkin patch and pick out the perfect pumpkins for my front porch. It has been years since I have visited a real pumpkin patch, where countless childhood memories were made. Fortunately, for those of us in Fayetteville I found just the right place to fulfill that nostalgic feeling.
Legacy Farms Pumpkin Patch located in Fayetteville, AR has everything you need to get your pumpkin patch fix. Not only do they have several different types and colors of pumpkins to choose from, they also sell mini hay bales which would be perfect for your front porch decor! Legacy Farms Pumpkin Patch also provides a playhouse village with tons of room for the kiddos to run around and play.

Now that you have picked out your favorite pumpkins to display or carve, it's time to make sure they last! Here's what you will need:
- liquid bleach
- spray bottle
- rag or paper towels
The first thing you want to do is wipe your pumpkin down of any dirt or debris. If you actually got it from a patch it is probably dirty. Next, mix in 3 tablespoons of bleach for every 1 cup of water. You will put this mixture in your spray bottle. Spray your bleach mixture directly on your pumpkins, let sit for 5 minutes then wipe down with your paper towel or rag. That's all! Now display your perfectly picked pumpkins proudly on your front porch or in your home.
