It's harvest time for this year's Halloween pumpkins

I love this time of year – Halloween (then Bonfire Night) really makes you feel like a kid again. But for our pumpkin farmers it must be a bit different.

Imagine you grow carving pumpkins for a living and spend 50 weeks of the year building up to this one event! What if you get to October and all your crop is a funny shape, or they don’t turn orange in time!

However, on Mark’s farm in Kent all was going well a couple of weeks ago when we visited. There were a few green ones, but fear not……… he has a plan.

Happy Halloween!
