Sorry folks! The excessive rain this year has ruined our pumpkin crop. We had over 30 inches of rain (a year’s supply) in three months. The vines came up but are very stressed from the wet ground. I even planted an additional 2 acres in pumpkins on higher ground to get through a possible wet season but they also did poorly. All crops except hay did poorly in the Mid-Atlantic this year. Since most of the crop in the Mid-Atlantic is ruined, pumpkins will have to be brought in from other areas…like Texas. Expect pumpkins to be in short supply and expensive this year.
