Ever seen a perfect pumpkin? Is it the color, or the spherical shape, or the weight that we use to determine worthiness in our holiday décor? Well, according to local farmers this may be the year to go out and seek this wonderful member of the squash family. We managed to catch Diane Hart (formerly Diane Remlinger and a third generation farmer in the Snoqualmie Valley) for a quick pumpkin update.
“The Remlinger family is thrilled with this year’s crop. Perfect complexion, vivid orange coloring, fantastic shapes and durable skin. What more can you ask for in a pumpkin?” This is a great outcome for the Remlinger Farm family as they, along with nearly every other Western Washington farm, have experienced a late harvest of nearly every berry and veggie crop this year. Remlingers actually plants every year in two of three patches (leaving the third to rest) to up the chances of “pumpkin” success and boy did it pay off this year. So put on those boots, load the kids up and visit the popular Remlinger Farms for pumpkins and a host of Fall Harvest activities (every weekend in October).
