Enjoy This Video of the Documentation of This Year’s Pumpkin Patch. It’s FUN and ENTERTAINING!
When I was little, I vividly remember helping out on my parent’s Pumpkin Farm. This was back in the late 80’s when I was under 5 years old. I think that’s why I am so attached to the Fall Season whenever it makes its way around again every year. I feel compelled to grow Fall crops, and keep growing the size of the amount I grow every year. When I was under 5 years old, I didn’t pay attention to the detail of growing champion pumpkins. I just knew that I loved the little munchkin pumpkins, and to me, at that time, the pie pumpkins looked huge.
Last year, I started out with a small pumpkin patch, and had little success. So why am I growing a half acre this year? Because I am confident knowing that I hav
e my Dad, Farmer Wayne, to turn to with questions. Last year, I thought I was hot stuff, and my pumpkins were going to be better than his. He definitely had the last laugh last season. This season, I watch and learn everything he does with his pumpkins, because after all, he used to grow them for a living.
I can’t believe how much I am learning from him, and how different my pumpkins are looking this year, compared to last. Every week there is a new improvement, but also a new battle. In the video below, I have captured all my pumpkin patch moments this year so far, and all my lessons. There are many things that I wasn’t doing, that I now learned to do from my Dad. I’d like to share that with you.
