Punkin Patch in North Logan

Autumn is in the air, here in Logan, UT.  This is the time of year that lots of people carve pumpkins, cook and can veggies and fruit. Want a good place to find fresh pumpkins and squash at a GREAT price? This is it.  Take 2200 N to 800 E right after you've crossed into N. Logan, and go left.  You'll see a huge variety off to your left, piled up on the sidewalk, in front of a cute little white house.  Picked locally, everything's fresh.  
I keep finding so many reasons why!
To get there, drive East on 2200 N. in N. Logan and turn North on 800 East. 
The place is surrounded by trees and fields...this is why Logan still feels rural, 
despite our dramatic population increase in the past 2-3 years.

This cute little white house has offered this Punkin Patch for at least 10 years, 
because that's when I first found it.
Linus would love this place:
Such a big variety of pumpkins and squash!
Did you know there's such a thing as a "flat" white pumpkin? 
...or what's called "pink" and "blue" pumpkins, too?
These are huge "blue" pumpkins.
Prettiest varieties of acorn squash, sweet pumpkins for baking, spaghetti squash...
Now that I remember where this place is, I'll get more produce there.
There aren't very many places anymore where payments are made using the honor system. 
 There's a red metal box to drop cash or a check in. 
Recently, they've made Venmo an option, too.   
This isn't actually unusual in Logan.  
Despite it's recent dramatic growth spurt, 
Logan maintains a small town atmosphere of trust and friendliness.  
I liked Cache Valley when I visited 15 years ago, and as time goes by, 
the reasons why just multiply!
