Saanich Peninsula, these pumpkins lay ready to harvest at the beginning of October.
In the Lower Mainland too, this year brought a very early crop of pumpkins.
This year, Okanagan peaches were gone by the first week of September. Pears soon followed. Then the delicious seasonal varieties of apples, like Honeycrisp, Braeburn and Gala, they were quickly joined by ripe pumpkins. I'll be making pumpkin curry this week.
