Looks like the pumpkin patch of 2013 is finally at a close. This year we managed to get 8 very good sized pumpkins, by far the best crop ever. Hell if I know why, but never the less happy about it. We still have 3 left to orange up, but as for the other five they are ready to pick. I am a bit hesitant to pick them as we never had a crop ready this early. If anybody has tips to how to keep them fresh till Halloween please pass it on. Not sure if I should leave them on the vine or not.
