Harvesting the Season's Pumpkins

With fall in the air and Halloween just weeks away, it’s pumpkin picking time here at my farm!

I have a large pumpkin and winter squash patch that's planted in early June every year. My gardeners and I plant lots and lots of pumpkin seeds - many from our favorite seed companies, and some from interesting and tasty fruits I’ve enjoyed in years past. By late September and early October, they're ready to be harvested. Ryan and Wilmer were busy picking pumpkins this week ahead of some expected heavy rain.

Take a look at our bounty and enjoy these photos.
