Giants, Ghosts, and Goblins

by Katie Cook


Halloween has been overshadowed this year by the Giants World Series win. There is more talk about this afternoon’s ticker tape parade than the outlandish costumes spotted on the streets. This is a bit strange since San Franciscans love their costumes. I took a break from Giants fever to check out Adobe Pumpkin Farm in Petaluma.

My skeleton pumpkin just before I picked it from the vine.

Adobe is a 30-acre family run farm and pumpkin patch. All of their pumpkins are grown on site and the farm also produces a variety of flowers and assorted crops. Throughout October the farm goes into Halloween mode with a haunted house, hay rides, a corn maze and games for the kids, and plenty of hot apple cider. At the front of the farm Adobe has stacks of perfectly symmetrical pumpkins for sale. For those who want to get a little dirty Adobe also lets you roam through the rows and rows of pumpkins to pick your perfect pumpkin straight from the vine. I chose my pumpkin because I thought that it would make the perfect skeleton jack-o-lantern (which it did).
