Pumpkin Picking Day at Pinoleville Head Start

Monday marked the annual pumpkin picking day for Pinoleville Native American Head Start. We planted the pumpkins in August in the Head Start garden, and let nature do the rest. Our department plants the pumpkins each year for the students of the Head Start. But this was the first year our Early Head Start program was open, which meant we needed to grow 60 pumpkins instead of the usual 30.

We managed to harvest more than the 60 pumpkins needed, so all the students were able to take home an organic, non-gmo pumpkin for the season. The students had a blast picking theirs out as you can see in the gallery above.
