 Pumpkin day ( October 17) starts at 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM and has more costs than Farm Heritage Day because of what the activities are and the added expense of being able to do them. The hay ride ($2), corn shelling , pony rides are the same ( not sure what she charges). Pumpkin painting ( $8-12 depending on size of pumpkin). $18 Pick your own pumpkin ticket gives you and your family one large pumpkin and the hay ride to and back from the field. If you want another pumpkin you pay $10 for large, $8 for next size down, $5 for med, $1 for mini sizes. Some unique and giant size pumpkins are extra. You should be able to distinguish them at the field. This you pay at the field. Old farm games; sack races, stilts, cob throwing, corn cob checkers, pumpkin archery, little kids village ( includes box train, stick horses, little people houses, parents must watch and play with their kids ). There are pig races throughout the day for both days. This is the start of the STOCKPIG Racing series for 2015. You can follow the pigs performance on the website each week. The races are scheduled throughout the day. Pumpkin day is the climax to the series and has more races than any other time. The schedule often varies somewhat but usually rights itself because of the number of races. First race is 10, second race is 11:30, third race is 12:30, fourth race is 1:30, fifth race is 2 :30, sixth race is 3:30. If there is to be a seventh race it will be closer to 4:30. Schedule often gets off so bear with it. Each race has 4 sets of races. Six pigs will compete in the first race followed by three each in the next two races. Then all 6 pigs compete in the final fourth race. The pigs that finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd get 9, 6, 3 points respectively. At the end of the season the pig with the most points wins the championship.

Stock pig racing got the season off after losing a day from last Saturday. This year’s pigs are named to make an acronym for INDIGO. For the first time they are all females. #1 is Ianthe. Her name means purple flower. #2 is Neelam. Her name means sapphire. #3 is Drisana. Her name means sunrise. #4 is Ignatia. Her name means like a fire. #5 is Georgiana. Her name means farm girl. #6 is Oriana. Her name means golden.

After Saturday’s races the points race is as follows; Neelam 69; Ignatis 63;Oriana36; Georgiana18; Drisana 18; Ianthe12.

Farm Heritage Day has been called off due to the extreme wet weather. The grounds here are very wet. Next Saturday we will have PYO pumpkins, Hay rides, stock pig racing and the hay maze. Keep posted for more details and schedule. 

   I encourage you to visit the Horry County museum and the folks at Waccamaw tractor club. They have been really good about trying to make the day work despite the weather..

Volunteer help is needed but certain  help in some areas  would receive some payment. The Saturdays of Oct. 3 and Oct 17 are most critical but help is needed on other Saturdays and the mornings during the week days. Please email or contact the farm market at 910-287-6794 or 843-399-6902.

    We are in the fast track! So much to do this time of year.  With the days getting shorter the timing becomes even more critical. Now is the time for grapes , winter squash begins and apples from the mountains. The beans and peas are still coming in strong, mustard greens , rape, arugula, turnip greens all look good. Carrots are up and look the best they have in many years, beets and turnips off to a good start. Several varieties of beautiful organic eggplant available now. We still have some neat peppers. The heirloom tomatoes have been slow but they are sizing up so we are still hoping to have a fall crop.

 We currently have a beautiful flush of Shitake mushrooms both at Myrtle's market and the farm market. Fresh cut tendergreens, mustard, turnip greens, arugula, rape and radishes are being harvested. The first of the winter squash and the Fall beans and peas are starting to come in as well. Muscadine grapes are really looking good! If you are a fan of excellent eggplant ask about the organic eggplant varieties available. Be sure to check out the peppers also. Yes we still have peaches and tomatoes.

PYO blueberries will be available Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 7:30-10:30. If you do not see someone at the field go to the market before you go into the field.

 We are still able to get O' Henry peaches. That variety will not be available for long so catch them now.
