There’s a bumper crop of winter squash and pumpkins in the Gardens at James Ranch this year! Instead of hauling it all in, we’d like to invite you to participate and get a great deal.
On Saturday, September 23rd and Saturday September 30th, from 11am-7pm, we’ll have burlap bags in two sizes for sale at the James Ranch Market for $10.00 ($18.00+ value) or $20.00 ($35.00+ value) respectively. Then you can follow the signs to the Pumpkin and Squash patch and fill those bags with however much squash will fit. You’ll also be able to buy a pumpkin tag to attach to a pumpkin for $5.00, $8.00, $12.00 or $20.00. All prices include tax.
We have some whopper Jack o’Lanterns in the field this year! After you’ve tagged a pumpkin or two and filled your sacks with squash, we’ll have transportation to take your harvest back to your car while you walk the return trip.
There will be helpers there to clip the squash off the plants and direct you to where your favorites are growing.
We have Delicata, Acorn, Butternut, Red Kabocha, Carnival, Spaghetti and Georgia Candy Roasters for our winter squash. In addition to Jack o’Lanterns we have Cinderella, Jarrahdale, Marina de Chioggia, Winter Luxury and Pie Pumpkins for tagging.
It will be a lot of fun and you’ll be getting a great deal along with a memorable experience! Yay!
