Seeds went into the ground around June 21st, though we had to re-seed a few times because of bird damage. If everything had gone according to plan we would be about 1.5 months away from harvesting squash and nearly 2 months away from harvesting pumpkins. Re-seeding put us about 3-4 weeks behind so I think we’ll harvest around late October/early November. I hope the pumpkins are ready for Halloween, but this might not be the case. Either way, there should be plenty of pumpkin and squash for Thanksgiving!

The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.” –Seeds of Change (from the Council for Responsible Genetics
