If you happen to be driving down Miller Avenue in Portsmouth, New Hampshire between the end of September and through October you may notice a front yard filled with what appears to be all the pumpkins in the world.
Although this could probably pass for Linus’s “Great Pumpkin” pumpkin patch in Charlie Brown, it’s actually the annual pumpkin sale put on by Portsmouth’s First United Methodist Church as a fund raiser.
And they got some pumpkins; all sizes, shapes, and uses. From tiny little gourds and mini pumpkins for fall decorating to huge carving pumpkins to sugar pumpkins for delicious pies.
Speaking of pies……If you’re a pie lover, they also operate a bake sale on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with delicious homemade goodies. Here’s the menu:
- Tuesday – Pies (especially apple & pumpkin)
- Wednesday – Baked Beans (pea & kidney)
- Thursday – Baked Goods
The hours are: Monday through Friday: 10 am – 6 pm, Saturday: 9 am through 6 pm, and of course closed on Sundays.
And the super friendly church folks that man the goodie booth.
Here’s a testimonial about their products. I bought a freshly baked apple pie and can testify that it
is was absolutely delicious. So if you’re in the market for a fall pumpkin or some delicious, home made baked goods head on down to First United Methodist Church at 129 Miller Avenue and pick up a couple of pumpkins and an apple pie or two.
