A pumpkin patch is a garden used for growing pumpkins. Each year, millions of children across North America look forward to visiting a local pumpkin patch. There, they can often play in corn mazes and learn about farm life.
The pumpkin originated in North America, and pumpkin seeds have been found in Mexico that may be over 7,000 years old. Today, they are grown on every continent except Antarctica.
Did you know? The word "pumpkin" is derived from a Greek term meaning "large and round." The heaviest pumpkins ever grown weigh over 1 ton.

Step by Step Instructions for Drawing a Pumpkin Patch
How to Draw a Great Looking Pumpkin Patch for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing your first pumpkin. Using two curved lines, enclose a vertical rounded shape. On each side of this shape, use a curved line to enclose an additional rounded shape. Repeat this process until the pumpkin is nearly circular in form. Use three short lines to enclose the rectangular stem on top of the pumpkin. Beneath the pumpkin, sketch wavy lines to indicate the ground.

Connect the pairs at the ends.

6. Draw a wheelbarrow, ready to help you cart the pumpkins away. Draw a circle within a circle, forming the wheel. Draw a smaller circle in the middle, and connect it to the outer circle using pairs of straight lines. Draw a set of straight, horizontal, parallel lines extending from the wheel to form the handle, and enclose the trapezoid-like shape of the wheelbarrow using several straight lines.
