Pumpkin Day & Naspig updates

Posted 10/2/2011 8:59pm by Sam Bellamy.

      We hope you enjoyed Farm Heritage Day. It was the first day of the NASPIG season and the pigs were a little distracted by the new faces and strange sounds. But perhaps the experts in pig racing were surprised the most. All during the September training and pre season hype the #2 Magic Lantern pig was no where on the radar screen to be a points leader. Pigs such as Jack be Quick #8 and Gold Rush #1were the talk of the track, sprinkled with a late round of Muchkins #4. The season is young and it will be interesting to see how the pigs respond to the experience. No one questions the speed and stretch of Jack Be Quick. Out front in the open he has demonstrated remarkable speed and the heart to go with it. But Naspig racing includes such things as getting a bad start or being blocked in by other pigs. Sometimes you will see pigs fight through that to get to the front, others tend to just go with the flow. Keep in mind Pumpkin Day ,Ocotber 15, will be key for determining a champion! Watch for more updates on pumpkin day later this week.
Pick Your Own Pumpkins will be open Saturday mornings ( 10-12 ). Call about Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

At the end of October 1 the point leaders are:

Magic Lantern 84

Jack BE Quick 52

One Too Many 37

Ironsides 35

Gold Rush 29

Little Boo 19

Merlin 17

Happy Jack 17

Muchins 14

Spring is Coming! 

We're excited about the changing season as we plant more lettuce, seed trays with warmer season crops, transplant tiny tomato plants into larger trays and protect the earliest strawberry blossoms from frost. 

We've harvesting a rainbow of crops from bright red radishes and dark green spinach to carrots and colorful chard. 

I've already seen a few red strawberries and can't wait for Spring to arrive with buckets of juicy berries!
