Do you love fall and pumpkins? Cinderella it is. This unique French heirloom with its intense red-orange color stands out in the pumpkin patch. Although one of the prettier pumpkins for decorating, it’s also great for eating. Cinderella’s thick, non-stringy flesh and very sweet flavor make it tops on our growing list. And why would you want to grow your own pumpkins? It gives the ‘end of the summer’ garden a splash of colorful orange zest.
But this year, in particular, there's a dash of extra magic to our Cinderella pumpkin patch. What makes this year any different or stand out from the rest? Well, these beauties managed to survive and grow through that terrible hail storm a few weeks back. That nasty weather pattern hit our area close to harvest time when many of our nearby farm friends suffered great loss. So this Cinderella pumpkin is a testament to surviving rough times. It's a Cinderella fairy tale plus fall magic at its best.
Cinderella and pumpkins – fall and New England, it doesn’t get better than that! And we can’t forget our #12 is back! For Tom Brady nation, the New England football season is on its magical track!
And one last note - celebrate the harvest season and our local farmers. Kick it off this Labor Day weekend - the perfect time to pick out a special pumpkin from your local farmers' pumpkin patch. Fall in New England - it doesn't get better than that! Enjoy these last days of summer while they last.
