In our photos you can view our fabulous 800 lb. giant pumpkin that we are very proud to have grown during 2006. Our black lab, Duke, who was the main greeter at our farm market from April of 2002 until his recent passing this early spring 2013, was a little upset that he could not pick up this pumpkin! He was very much known as “the furry pumpkin picker” and had even been titled as such in our local newspapers! Starting young, with small pie pumpkins, he progressed over the years to much larger sizes, and gave everyone a laugh with his antics, especially on haywagon rides to the pumpkin patch. He could never leave the patch without picking and chewing at least one! We miss him dearly. He was a unique personality around the farm and lots of fun! RIP Duke.
The squash varieties are very tasty and with proper cool storage, can last in your home through January for a winter-long treat. Better yet, cook and freeze your favorite squash to be assured you will be enjoying it at its peak quality and moisture level.
We grow delicata, sweet dumpling, butternut, buttercup, orange mooregold buttercup, blue hubbard, golden hubbard, acorn, golden orange acorn, spaghetti squash, and any other varieties that become new on the growing market.
And remember, this time of year we still have yummy jumbo fall red raspberries, watermelon, tomatoes, peppers, and cukes! Our fall produce also includes brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, and wonderful chef-quality baking potatoes.
