Heirloom Pumpkins

  This is a Jarrahdale pumpkin.
The flesh is sweet, string-less, yellow in color.
This one is a good baking type.
 Here we have a Long Island Cheese.
The flesh is deep orange, moderately sweet.
They are known for their long storage life.
 Don't you love this Galeux d'Eysines!
The warts are the result of sugar in the skin.
They are sweet with smooth orange flesh.
Use them in soups and sauces.
And here is a beautiful Cinderella pumpkin.
They have a deep orange experior with a lighter flesh.
They are a favorite for baking.
And we also have Lumina, the white pumpkin in the background of many of these photos.
They are known for their delicious flavor and excellent for pies.
I hope you have the time to visit and pick out a few flavorful pumpkins.

Oh!... Pumpkin Time! And everything to decorate for Fall

We have opened our pumpkin field...
And look what we found.
This wagon is full of gourds, miniature pumpkins and a few jack-o-lanterns.
Our field is full of colorful Heirloom pumpkins; red, peach, blue/green and white are a few of the colors. And warty ones too!
And... of course, we have standard jack-o-lanterns from miniature to huge.
We also have beautiful, 8" pot mums in a variety of colors for $6.00, corn stalks and bales of straw.
And the u-cut flowers are beautiful!
We have zinnias, sunflowers, snapdragons, cosmos and a few other types.
And all for 30¢ a stem.
Bring your own bucket and we can fill it with water to keep your blooms fresh on the car ride home.
We still have a limited supply of tomatoes for u-pick; $1.00#.
