Autumn celebration

Tasty squashes and Halloween pumpkins, garden open weekend 16th & 17th October 10am – 4pm. In association with The Hanging Gardens pumpkin festival.

It’s Autumn harvest time and to celebrate we will be holding an open weekend at the market garden at Old Hall.

We had an unusually late frost this year on 23rd June, which wiped out all the summer crops including the squashes and pumpkins. But we started again and the harvest has now begun. We have lots of tasty edible squashes and hopefully the Halloween pumpkins will be orange in time.

This weekend we will we be having a go at threshing some of our heritage, mixed population wheat.
