El Paso-Area Pumpkin Patches for Those Who Don’t Want to Go to a Corn Maze
Now that autumn is officially here and the seasonal decorations are going up perhaps you are on the hunt for pumpkins to carve, paint, or use as front door décor.
For those looking to bring a gourd or two home without having to negotiate the crush of people at one of the three area corn mazes, here are a few area alternatives.
Sure, the supermarkets have them and I get the whole convenience thing, but where’s the fun in that?
