The Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch

Pumpkin patch season is nearly upon us, and I know where you can find the sweetest photo opportunity in town — with the Mom’s Guide, Honeybee Photography & Close5 at Summers Past Farms.



Located in East San Diego, Summers Past Farms is one of the most charming spots in the entire county. While the only “farm” animals are chickens, cats and the occasional miniature donkey, families can wander the gorgeous gardens and truly feel that they have stepped back in time. Their fall pumpkin patch won’t be as busy as the more commercial ones are, so just perfect for those craving a special experience.

We love our real pumpkin patch

Many of our readers are familiar with the awesome photo shoots we’ve hosted in past, compliments of Close5, and this one will be one of the best!

Join us on Wednesday, October 5th between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. for complimentary coffee, a gorgeous day on the farm and the sweetest picture of your favorite pumpkin(s). Infants through school-aged children will be photographed in the patch by Honeybee Photography. One digital image will be provided for free to every family with the Close5 app. (Those without can pay $20 per image to Honeybee.)


To RSVP for this event, please email with your child(rens) name, age and your preferred time of day.

Summers Past Farms is located at 15602 Olde Hwy 80. Flinn Springs, which is about a 15 minute drive east from Mission Valley. It’s worth the trip. 🙂

Happy Fall!
