Tis the season

Well, its getting to be that time again! Pumpkin crop was doing well this year with all the rain we got in the spring...until the vine borers infested the patch and slowly began killing the plants.
I was able to kill a few of them but there are just too many of the pesky critters this year.
We managed to get a few good pumpkins, one of which I had to harvest already since the vine was infested right at the stem. Kind of frustrating but at least we will get 6 or 7 jacks out of the patch this year!

outdoor decor

Got most of the outdoor decor up for the haunt..
just in time for the 40 mph wind gusts. Not surprised, it happens every year.
Weather this year is pretty cold and windy and looks like that will stay with us through the holiday.

pumpkin harvest time

Well, here is the final tally on this years pumpkin harvest (minus 2 giveaways).
Our dog Zoey enjoys the sun with them.
Was a good year although the ghost pumpkins took over the patch and some what limited the orange
crop, it was the largest we have ever had. Now to just let them cure a bit in the sun before they go
under the knife......

Deadwood pumpkin patch update 2018

Well after last years flood and disappointing crop, 2018 looks to be a better year
We received some white "ghost"pumpkins last fall from our neighbor and I saved the seeds 
to give them a shot. They started out very slow but then took off and kind of took over the patch.
As of now I have probably a dozen, only 5 of them orange and the rest white. And the white ones are turning out to be monsters...and still growing! will have to wait till later in the fall for a final count because a lot of them are growing far out into the wetland and I don't feel like hiking through all of that- I will just wait and look for the glimpses of orange in the reeds!
