OPP update...
You only have to go to your local supermarket to see how the rains have impacted veggie prices. We lost more than half of our 320 pumpkins yet we must keep to the contracts with our major buyers (total of 125 Premium Pumpkins). That leaves us with 22 pumpkins to sell to the public. We had more than 100 about a month ago but you know what happened!
Please stay tuned.....we hope to open sales by Sept 20th.
Thank you for your patience and support.

Here's our weekly update....
We have pruned back the plants which means the crop will remain at its current amount. As we reported, we have to fill two large orders. If the weather stays fair, we will have 30 to 40 pumpkins up for sale. We had 100 but the typhoon and heavy rains wiped out quite a few great pumpkins. Next year, we will double our land size, and improve drainage.
Our current motto is, 'What we can't control at the moment, we will learn to control in the future'
Thanks for all your support!

We lost a bunch but some of our pumpkins grew quite a bit after the typhoon. Before and After photos of one of the Atlantic Giants. Three days growth....!

The typhoon claimed quite a few pumpkins.....here are a few pics.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news is the recent typhoon and torrential rains have taken a toll on the pumpkin patches. We've lost almost 30% of the crop due to a fungus caused by excess standing water. We have created drains in case the rain comes again. On to the good news, it looks like the rest of the pumpkins are healthy, and will be ready for the first week of October.
We have one large order to fill before we can sell to the general public...thanks for your patience.
It's been a real learning experience. We can only gain and go on.

We were a bit concerned that the 'Super Typhoon' would wipe out our crop. Here's proof.....OPP North and OPP South are looking green!

For those who like a larger Jack O' Lantern, OPP has planted a bunch of Atlantic Giants. Smaller Giants, are beach ball sized...with larger ones growing up to 80kg.

OPP has planted close to 80 Autumn Gold plants. Probably the most popular species of Jack O' Lantern pumpkins.

Amazing news! The farmer who owns the adjacent field to OPP South has allowed us to lease his field. Too bad it's a bit late for this season's crop but it will definitely help us next year. The gentleman was kind enough to plow it for us.

OPP North's plants are looking great. Here are some photos taken yesterday.
