The Old Order Mennonite farmers up the road from us are harvesting a whole field of orange beauties, loading them into a wagon, and making repeat trips for more. Us, we’re fortunate to have three big pumpkins to display because the vine borers are a menace and destroyed most of our crop. Again. We still need some better organic methods of dealing with these pests, but back to the pumpkins. Daughter Elise glories in them. This pumpkin weighed nearly 100 pounds and was so big her father helped her harvest it. We’re all proud.
Some Fun Quotes from Pumpkin Nook:
“I never met a pumpkin I didn’t like.”
“Bring us your tired, your poor, your pumpkin growers.”
“Ask not what your Pumpkin can do for you, ask what you can do for your pumpkin!”
“A Pumpkin by any other name is still a pumpkin.”
If at first you don’t succeed, sow, sow (or grow, grow) again.
“To err is human, a pumpkin is divine.”
