Carrots

Pumpkin

We were asked by one of our customers to see if we could grow pumpkins, we had never grown them before,  as we like a challenge  we thought we would try it. We allocated a 10 acre site with a view to growing around 50,000 pumpkins. What we didn’t know when we agreed at the time that it was going to be a very difficult growing year for most crops including pumpkins. We planted them around end May/June to avoid the frosts and waited………………
We were really pleased with the quality however,  some were a bit small but we managed to sell most of them including some on the local car boot!!
