How we Grow our Pumpkins
The pumpkins are nurtured by hand from little seeds in our greenhouse until they are large enough to be planted out in the field. Its a family affair with Paul's wife Rose (and their two small children) helping plant out the pumpkin plugs. As you can imagine this is a lengthy process but very satisfying when they have all been planted.
Once the pumpkins have been planted we hope that we get lots of rain and hot sunshine. We then wait until they are ripe and ready to be harvested. Clearing the field of pumpkins is done by a team of helpers including Paul and Rose (which is great exercise) and the pumpkins are brought in off the field and displayed ready in The Pumpkin Barn for our customers to come and buy them.
