Last week, I was fortunate enough to be given special access to one of my favourite places, the PYO Pumpkins field in Hoo, Kent!
Autumn and Halloween are my favourite times of the year and I absolutely LOVE Pumpkins! Baking with them, carving them, just having them in the house makes me so happy. When I was a little girl in Canada, my mum and I used to pick pumpkins every Autumn but I didn’t know there was anything like that here in the UK. A few years ago I discovered a place called PYO Pumpkins which was only half an hour from me in Hoo and it was everything I had imagined.
Pumpkins as far as the eye can see in so many varieties, it was a pumpkin dream! So, imagine how happy I was when they got in touch and asked if I would like to go to the farm before it opened to the public to get my pick of the pumpkins!!
PYO Pumpkins started seven years ago with just a handful of seeds and has grown over the years thanks to social media and it’s amazing experience that people just want to talk about! Over 300,000 seeds get planted every year making more than 30 different types of pumpkins.
Check out my video below of my awesome day and make sure to go down and check it out! They are open weekends in October, including half term. For full details check their website here.
Happy Halloween and Happy Baking!
