What a difference 1 week and 2″ of rain makes

Look at these beautiful speckled swan gourds! They were barely the size of an 8 oz. water glass a little over a week ago. Two inches of rain and a week of 80-degree temps, and these babies are gorgeous. They’re easily the size of adult feet and they’ve got LOTS of cousins in Papa’s Pumpkin Patch.

Oh, BTW, there are just 21 days until Papa’s is open for the 2012 season! That’s right. We’re back in Bismarck and we open Monday, Sept. 10 and you can visit us every day (weather permitting) from 12-7 pm. Plan your visit now, and if you think you might want to stop by more than once — consider a season pass to Papa’s.
