Planting Begins

We were able to start planting today! Very exciting and a little challenging, as anything is the first time you do it. Cooper rode shot-gun in the tractor with Dave and Layla and I hand planted the giants and staked varieties. We are so excited to see little green vines start poking out of the ground!

The "Magic" Day

We have heard from several of our friends who are in the pumpkin business, that May 15th is the "magic" day for planting. Well, looking at my calendar, I realize that day is quickly approaching. A pumpkin patch seems like a simple enough business to set up, but as fall gets closer, our list seems to get longer! The next items on the list are, of course, plant the pumpkins, gourds and squash. Once they are in, we will work on getting the barn ready for retail business. This will include building a very large wall. Should be interesting......I'll keep you posted!
