Notes from Green Thumb Farm - October 1, 2015

October is here and its time again for our annual fall farm tour and pumpkin picking. The tour is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th. It will be a sit down riding tour in a farm wagon pulled by a tractor. There is limited seating on the wagon so reservations are required. The times are 10:30; 11:30; 12:30; and 1:30. The tour lasts about an hour; we will see many of our fall crops, including different greens, turnips, radishes, kales, broccoli and cauliflowers. At the end everyone can pick a pumpkin—pie pumpkins.
