Q. It’s 110 degrees where we are. Is Fall really in the air?

A: Well, It might not be in the air, but it’s definitely on our minds.

Q: Got it, but why are you mentioning Pumpkin Tree in July?

A: Great Question. Pumpkin trees are one of our favorite and super seasonal crops. We plant these in February/March and our farm team is out in the fields everyday all summer manicuring them daily. AKA keeping pesky beetles and mites away.

Q: Are Pumpkin trees a high maintenance crop?

A: They are and they are totally worth it. It’s actually one of clients favorite crops even though it’s only a 8 to 10 week crop.

Q: When does the season start? A: We start harvesting in early September through early November.

Q: Anything else you want to share?

A: Just some pictures of course….
