Pumpkin Week Diary – First Entry

26th January 2017

During pumpkin week some of you asked where we bought our pumpkins from. Not everyone but a quite a few! This made us think it might be a really good idea to start a pumpkin diary. It takes a lot of planning, hard work and great English weather to get ready for Pumpkin week. In fact we have already started getting the field ready now, ploughing and putting down a huge amount of great quality compost. The fact is, that we grow every single pumpkin that is on our field for pumpkin week ourselves here at Hurst Farm. Last year we grew 12,000 plants from seed and harvested around 30,000 pumpkins.

Here in our new Pumpkin Diaries we are going to share that journey with you!
