Yesterday I had a grand time harvesting my pumpkins!
I didn’t really know how many were out there because the vines were so prolific all summer long. Everyone here knows that estimating poundage is not one of my strengths. Before I went out to pick them I was guessing that I might get 100-200 pounds of pumpkins. When I returned with 353 pounds, I was happy. 🙂
A couple days before I had harvested the butternut squash from hoop house 5 and got 357 pounds! It is a pleasant feeling to know that I have all that poundage squirreled away for the winter. I also have a long row of carrots that will overwinter in the ground, beets, potatoes, and greens (still in the garden). If it wasn’t for the greens that I have out in the garden I think that I would feel ready for the snow to fly!
