Picking Lots of Pumpkins at My Farm

One of our favorite fall activities here at my Bedford, New York farm is picking pumpkins.

This year, we have so many gorgeous pumpkins in so many shapes, sizes and colors. I have a large pumpkin patch that's planted in 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. My pumpkin patch is located in one corner of my lower hayfield at the far end of my allee of London planes and smoke bushes. I hope you caught a glimpse of it on the Season 2 premiere of "Martha Knows Best." My show airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET/PT on HGTV.

We finished picking all the pumpkins last week. Here are some photos, enjoy.
