Pumpkin Season Approaching!
We’re busy getting ready for fall. It’s been a challenging year with way too much rain in May and June. All planting was delayed almost a month. We did mud the seed in the ground, tractors are heavy, so mud is not our friend. Most pumpkins take 90 days to grow and mature. With more rain, the weeds got ahead of us. Pumpkins and weeds aren’t friends. More challenges. Other pumpkin growers in the area are in the same boat.
We’ll open a week later this year, Saturday, Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. We’re open seven days a week through Halloween, closing at 6p..
We’ll find pumpkins someplace and hopefully by Oct., ours will be ready. Our U-Pick Gourd Patch is a favorite for customers, currently it looks bleak.
Come visit us for pumpkins, mums, winter squash, bittersweet, corn stalks, straw, Indian corn and Grandma Ding’s fudge! We’ll also have tomatoes, summer squash and cucumbers!
We love having pre-schools and other groups visit! Contact us for details — just $2 a student and everyone gets a pumpkin to take home with them. 816-858-5758 to reserve a date.
See you soon.
