Who IS “Lord of the Gourd”? That would be Pat Harrison, one of a growing number of pumpkin sculptors throughout the land. Check him out on Facebook here. He’s also a musician – check out his music page here.

Pat said he came across Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch one day when he was out exploring the Old Mission Peninsula on his day off.

“They have a beautiful farm and a great assortment of pumpkins, gourds, squash, decorative corn, corn stalks, straw bales, apples, and other fall decorations,” wrote Pat on Facebook. “I met the owners and they’re super-nice folks, and now I’m happy to say I’ll be doing a carving show there!”

If you haven’t been to Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch yet, this is a great time to check it out, grab a pumpkin or three, and watch the Lord of the Gourd in his element. I’m guessing they might also have Buchan’s apple cider and donuts on hand.

Here are a few more photos of this year’s pumpkins at Cory Holman’s Pumpkin Patch!

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
