Pumpkin Harvest 20132013 was a much better year for growing pumpkins than last year.  Check out this story of one grower who talks about this year’s crop compared to last year. It gives a good perspective of how a grower perceives the entire pumpkin growing season.

This time of year is an exciting time for kids to see pumkin patches up close. I have talked to pumpkin growers and they are some of the most passionate people and they know their product and soil content in detail. These growers are tough people and they face the weather elements head on and do what they need to do to have a succesful crop. In addition, people like Tim Vala and his family have developed quite a business over the years at Vala’s Pumpkin Patch in Gretna, Nebraska. Check out this video and see why this place is one of the most popular destinations in Eastern Nebraska. Vala’s is located just outside Omaha, Nebraska.
