Pumpkin farmers!

We can actually say we’re farmers since now we have planted almost an acre of one kind of crop – pumpkins! It was a lot of work, but the whole family got involved, and a few friends. We are so excited to be growing pumpkins this year – the whole reason to open our pumpkin patch. We’ll keep you posted on their progress.

First we had to set up a drip line on the whole field
Drip, drip.

Then we planted the seeds – 9 per grouping, 30 groups per row, 20 rows total. We figured about 5,400 seeds all planted by hand!

We teamed up – one would dig holes and the other to plant the seeds.

It took 10 of us about 6 hours to complete the whole planting process! Our kids worked so hard, I was really proud of them!
