A rite of passing into autumn each September on the Wasatch Back is the return of Carole Duh’s Pumpkin Patch! The pumpkins will make their debut on Friday, Sept. 2 at artique in Kamas with a special public celebration from 6:00-9:00 p.m. — everyone is invited. The much-awaited collection of hand knit, sewn and felted pumpkins in every conceivable size and color is always a special celebration. And if you can’t make it for the grand opening, the pumpkins will hold visiting hours through Thanksgiving at artique, every Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
The pumpkins are now off to market. But on their final night at Star Barn Silver Creek, artist Carole Duh walks you through the 2021 pumpkin lineup.
Pumpkin Patch Opens Sept. 3 at artique
Carole Duh’s Pumpkin Patch is back! On Friday, Sept. 3, artique in Kamas will play host to the opening of the much-awaited collection of hand knit, sewn and felted pumpkins in every conceivable size and color. The public opening is set for 6:00-9:00 p.m., with the Pumpkin Patch remaining open through Thanksgiving.
Every summer when mid-August rolls around it’s time to stop production and get the annual photo prepared. Each season we look for a new concept in showcasing my delightful hand knit pumpkins. This year we rolled the green granny wagon filled with pumpkins with the new crop from the Star Barn Pumpkin Factory out to our front yard where we placed a vintage cabinet amidst the sage and grasses.
What a wonderful scene it was, with bright, colorful pumpkins reflecting the first rays of su!
It was so much fun to display the pumpkins that way. So I’ve decided to bring the cabinet to artique in Kamas for our First Friday, Sept. 3 Pumpkin Patch Opening Party. You can see it filled with pumpkins from September through Thanksgiving at artique. Stop by Thursday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
You can also find a selection of pumpkins at Park City Gardens on Utah 224 in Park City, and at Brambles & Blossoms just south of Provo on US89.
Enjoy this look back at pumpkins past.
