We certainly have enough pumpkins to share with everyone! John & Curtis grew several different varieties of pumpkins this year. All the orange pumpkins are a lovely shade of orange and are perfectly shaped. They also grew giant white pumpkins if you are looking for something a little bit different. They have you covered no matter what you want for your Halloween jack-o’-lantern! To see some picture of the boys planting their crop last year you can visit “Pumpkins & Squash.”
And just like that it’s a wrap on #Harvest19. Five weeks of long and hard days came to an end last week when we put the last load of potatoes in the storage for the winter. The weather cooperated for the most part, the machine and equipment breakdowns were minimal and as usual everyone here at the farm put a huge effort into the harvest. The potato windrower and potato harvester shown in the photo have been dubbed “The Iron” by RJ. And now we thank The Iron for a job well done, clean them up and set them to rest until next fall. To see a video of these machines in action you can visit “The Potato Windrower” and “The Potato Harvester.”
