Jacksonville’s chilly weather today got me in the mood for Halloween and Thanksgiving so I decided to do a little holiday decorating. A great (and convenient) place to do this is at Ortega United Methodist Church’s Pumpkin Patch. When I stopped by, they were doing a brisk business (I suppose the cool weather had the same impact on others) and it was fun watching the little toddlers run around the big piles of pumpkins. I selected a huge round pumpkin for my front doorstep as well as a few smaller ones, some gourds and dried corn.
They have all shapes and sizes. You can pick out miniature pumpkins, big fat ones for a Jack-O-Lantern or even a silvery green one (I saw these once in a Martha Stewart magazine)! They also have great looking gourds, dried corn and other things that help you get in the spirit. The source of all these goodies is at Ortega United Methodist Church which is conveniently located at 4807 Roosevelt Blvd. in Ortega.
The proceeds from the sale go to support the youth group at the church. For more information on the sale or other things going on at Ortega United Methodist Church, click on their link.
Just a few blocks from this cute little pumpkin patch, we have a great listing at 4834 Arapahoe Avenue, in Ortega Terrace. Continue South on Roosevelt Blvd. abut a half mile, turn left onto Robert Gordon and then turn left onto Arapahoe. The house is a beautiful two story brick colonial on a great street. Priced at only $545K and under $200 per square foot, this is a great buy! If you’d like to take a look, please give me a call at 904-252-5181 or click here to see more details about 4834 Arapahoe Avenue.
