Kürbise (Pumpkins)

Wednesday afternoon we visited the pumpkin farm ( Jucker Farms) with a bunch of our friends and had a great time.

Check out those pumpkins. The Swiss do not celebrate Halloween but they do have some nice fall festivals. If you get the chance to visit Jucker Farms it really is a fantastic place.

They had the coolest displays made of all pumpkins.

The farm in really kid friendly, which makes it parent friendly. .

Say Cheese….. You’d think with all the pumpkins they would want to participate in Halloween.

  • Hey Julie, Looks like a fun afternoon with the kids. We are going to an orchard soon that looks quite similar. So what was the update to the school story with Jonah? Anymore break-outs?

  • Ok the red flowers blooming above the haystacks were gorgeous. And that is interesting, a sheep skin covering the haystacks. The pumpkin sculptures looked really cool, but I guess if you don’t celebrate Halloween you have to do something else with all the pumpkins….it looks like you have a great group of friends…Oh the pumpkins look like they grow a little different sized, like wider than here in USA, maybe it was the camera..

  • It looks like the really big pumpkins are melting!What a fun and beautiful place, Sure beats Apple Hill!What is with the sheep-skin on the hay stacks?!

  • I can’t wait to go to Apple Hill. Hey, maybe I should just come visit you! I’m so glad you found my blog b/c I love seeing how big the boys are getting. I’m so glad you guys are doing well.

  • How fun. It looks beautiful there. I love this time of year! I can’t wait to see you at Christmas time, you’re still planning on stopping by for a visit, right?=)

  • Ok, that first picture is really beautiful, the background! Seriously, you’d think that Europeans would get into Halloween! Are you coming to CA for the holidays and if so, when? We will be there for 2 weeks, so if you’re around, I would love to see you!

  • Hi! I found your blog through Jenna. Anyway, I do not know why but you look so familiar. Maybe not? Anyways, we lived in Switzerland this summer. I was reading your post about the teacher not knowing that your son was not in class or didn’t seam to care. I would mention this to the principal. The teacher are suppose to call you when a student doesn’t show up. I think they are required too because of the possibility of kidnappings. Our son didn’t show up for something or was a little late because I had mixed up his schedule and was called immediately. The next day the teacher chewed me out for not calling. BTW, I love all your photographs. They make me miss Switzerland just a little bit. However, I am glad to be back here in the States.

  • You make good friends and memories wherever you go, Julie…and that makes me happy. What an amazing pumpkin patch! Love, Mom
