U-Pick Pumpkin Day
Ever wanted to pick pumpkins in a pumpkin patch? Sept. 13 and 20 you can pick the perfect pumpkin in the patch. There will also be pre-picked pumpkins and veggies for sale.
There will be lots of photo opportunity: a sunflower "room", the 67 blue truck loaded with pumpkins, and more.
Location: Across from the Mennonite Heritage Museum. Note: I have 2 gardens, a north and south, this is happening on the south garden. To get to my north garden you go north of Double R and to get to my south garden you go south of Double R.
Date: Septermber 13 and 20 from 11 am to 5 pm. Rain or shine!
If you have a wagon, you may want to bring it.
They're no bathrooms at the patch. The closest is the Mennonite Heritage Museum or McDonald's.
Pumpkin leaves and stems are prickly. To have an enjoyable time long pants and closed toe shoes or boots are suggested. If you have gardening gloves bring them to protect your hands.
Be cautious when walking in the patch, the ground is uneven.
Pumpkin stems are fragile, please pick up pumpkins from the bottom.
Will pumpkins keep til October? Yes, if you follow these tips: storage tips.
