Project Pumpkin

20150806_122542

Visitors to the winery will notice a patch of low-growing vines to the left of the parking lot.  Pumpkins!

No, we’re not making pumpkin wine, although we’ve thought of the possibilities (a Harry-Potter-esque cinnamon spiced sweet wine).

It’s for a fundraiser for our daughter’s hockey team.  One of the Hockey Moms said to me, Tim, why don’t we get the girls to sell pumpkins in the Fall?  You’ve got lots of land, pumpkins are easy to grow…

Sure!

So here we are with 88 pumpkin plants sprawling in our garden.  They have really cool day-of-the-triffids flowers right now!

On the first weekend in October at our Harvest Party, hopefully the Scarborough Sharks Bantam A girls hockey team will descend on the vineyards to pick grapes and take home their pumpkins.

I sure don’t know how we would transport 300 pumpkins without their help!
