Frost on the Pumpkin

by Nate Rafn | Living Culture

I just returned from a visit to Bridgeport Farms & Gardens near Monmouth, Oregon. The farm is owned and operated by Jerry and Jo Dhooghe. Most of Bridgeport's 87 acres are reserved for wetland restoration, with much of the rest used for growing vegetables. The farm also has a small country store, providing fresh produce and various organic foods.

Here's a snippet from their website:

"Turning 30-40 tons of organic green compost annually provides quality living soil for everything grown at the farm. Our rustic country store, built almost entirely out of reclaimed and recycled materials, features organic food, local and regional organic produce, and much more; plus books and a lending library of materials on natural healing and healthy food choices." 

With winter weather fast approaching, most of their soil is bare. These pumpkins are the last remaining vegetables in the field.
