Pumpkins mean fun. They are fun to choose, fun to carve and really fun to eat in a myriad of ways. You might think I’m jumping the gun talking about pumpkins in September but we experience frosts early in Alberta and if you wait until October – when pumpkins truly are on people’s minds – you will miss out on the opportunity to visit a pumpkin patch in its prime.
If your family likes picking a pumpkin out of a big bin at the grocery store, just imagine how much fun they would have in an honest-to-goodness pumpkin patch on one of our beautiful Alberta farms. This post will talk about where to find pumpkin patches in Alberta, how to prepare pumpkins for eating and some great pumpkin recipes sure to enhance your enjoyment of our quickly approaching fall.
