September 24/18 – Part 2 – Nackawic, New Brunswick to Truro, Nova Scotia and September 25/18 – Truro – The Great Pumpkin

We knew we would be seeing pumpkin patches and displays as we traveled through the Maritimes. Not sure if we knew how big the fields or pumpkins would be. The feature  shot was taken near Sussex, New Brunswick and the one below near Truro. We were surprised to hear that the majority of the field pumpkins simply rot in the fields, returning nutrients back to the soil. I guess there is such a thing as pumpkin oversupply. Some things, you just do not see in Alberta.

  1. As we travelled across Canada and the Us and the fall came on, there were more and more pumpkin displays in front of stores and houses. But, the only places we saw fields full of pumpkins was in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. As to leaving the pumpkins in the field, I would have thought they would have at least been collected for animal feed. Pigs love pumpkins. Oh well. Thanks for reading and commenting John. Allan
