Picking Pumpkins at the Farm

With 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. It is located behind the vegetable gardens and chicken coops. We also plant seeds in a smaller area near my main greenhouse and cutting garden. Many of the seeds are 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. Last week, Ryan and Wilmer were busy picking pumpkins ahead of some expected rain.

Take a look at our bounty and enjoy these photos.
