Winter finally ended and we’re looking forward hopefully to better weather than the summer of 2017.
On Victoria Day we transplanted our giant pumpkins at the farm in Richmond Hill in preparation for your Thanksgiving and Halloween displays. As in Muskoka, it was a beautiful summer day.
Fall has come around again and we are preparing for Thanksgiving and Halloween. After a particularly wet summer the pumpkins are extra large and heavy. Conversely, because of the extreme heat early this fall our local turkey grower has warned us that the fresh turkeys won’t be as big this Thanksgiving.
This time of year provides the widest variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables available in Ontario. Sweet corn is at it’s very sweetest, local apples are coming to market, raspberries and strawberries are still coming from ever-bearing fields and the watermelons are dripping in flavour. Niagara peaches are exceptional and Fall squashes are rolling in.
