Pumpkins aplenty at plantation


Share post:

FOR?THE?FIRST TIME in six years of planting pumpkins, Lears Plantation has finally reaped a bountiful crop.
Manager Elvis Gittens told the DAILY?NATION?yesterday that the two-acre crop had yielded hundreds of pumpkins and the farm was also astonished by the size of the vegetable.
“We had one which was 32 pounds,” Gittens gushed, pointing out that persons were flocking to the St Michael farm to buy the pumpkins as word was spreading rapidly.
Gittens said the plantation planted the same amount of acreage last year but the production fell way below expectations.
Asked what was responsible for the unusual crop this year, he said that the persistent rainfall might have contributed to the huge crop.
