Pumpkins survive the weather

Thousands of pumpkins are expected to go from patches to doorsteps in Door and Kewaunee Counties over the coming weeks. Many pumpkin growers across the state were not excluded from the pain other farmers experienced this year as the cold, wet weather claimed a large portion of their crop. Hillside Apples owner Bill Roethle says while smaller pumpkins and gourds may have struggled a little bit, he is still happy with this year’s batch in Casco.

To keep your pumpkins and other gourds looking as good as the day you brought them home, it is recommended you keep it on a dry surface, watch out for cold weather, and wait as long as you can before you carve it.
