News from the Farmer

Pumpkin season is about to take off and soon our days and evenings will be filled with nonstop wagon loads of orange. We have all kinds of shapes and sizes from mini pumpkins, gourds and pie pumpkins, to giant pumpkins, specialty varieties and white pumpkins for a change of pace. I tend to repeat myself sometimes but have I mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year?! Corn fields are drying out awaiting the harvest, leaves are beginning to turn and the weather is just right. As other crops on the farm run their course and end throughout this week, one being sweet corn, we are able to devote more time to cutting, rowing and brushing the dirt off of our pumpkin crop so that in the next few weeks to come the harvest will be easier and more efficient. This is especially important considering that at peak we can harvest in excess of 200 bins of pumpkins in a day! Let’s hope the rain will give us an extended break and a dry, sunny and beautiful fall. Lord knows we are deserving of some nice weather in the coming month. Have a great share week!
