Home About Calendar Events Spring Fall Winter

Changing with the seasons

October was busy with events here, and we loved it! Every weekend was a host of Pumpkin Palooza fall activities. For the famous annual SNGPG Weigh-off, over 4,000 people came to our little corner of Warren, Rhode Island to enjoy the festivities, witness that gigantic pumpkin drop and, most importantly, see those huge gourds lined up! This year’s winner came in at 1,870 lbs. and was proudly grown by Charles Lieber of Massachusetts. It was also a big year for squash -- Joe Jutras from Rhode Island won first place with a 1421.5 lb. squash, the second largest ever grown in the world! It’s certainly a pleasure hosting this great group of pumpkin growers each year.

Now that we’ve headed into November, remember to cut back your mums 5-6 inches after a heavy frost then mulch heavily after the ground has frozen. This is the key to successfully overwintering mums.

For your vegetable garden, leave some organic material on top to protect the soil from the harsh winter weather. This could be leaves, grass cuttings, straw or any compost which can then be turned under in the spring.

The farm will soon be turning into a winter wonderland with fresh greenery, holiday décor and gift items. Don’t miss our Open House Thanksgiving weekend and get a sneak peak (and 20% discount!) during Girls Nite Out November 7.

We hope to see you this month!
