Pumpkin Field Trip F1 Seed

Pumpkin Field Trip F1 Seed

About Seed Types

Below are the most common seed types on the market. All the listed treatments are completely safe for planting and eating the vegetables grown from them.

Standard Treated

The treatment may be hot water, chemical, or biological, depending on the pathogen involved. Treatment is applied under controlled conditions, in a commonly recognized fashion, at the manufacturer’s recommended rate. 

Treated seed is usually a bright color to help growers easily distinguish it from other seeds.  Seed  treatments typically breakdown in the soil within 10-14 days. 

Some of our seed packages are labeled "DO NOT USE SEED FOR FOOD, FEED OR OIL". The seed itself is not edible, however v egetables and fruit grown from treated seed are most certainly safe and suitable for eating. In fact, many commercial growers use treated seed in their vegetable and fruit production since it improves the performance of the seed and seedling. M uch of the non-organic produce in grocery stores and farmers' markets is grown using treated seed. 

Standard Cruiser Treated

Insect Guard treated corn seed is treated with Cruiser, a protectant with numerous benefits.

1. Protects against flea beetles up to the five true-leaf (V5) stage, lessening transmission of Stewart’s Bacterial Wilt. 2. Minimizes stand loss due to wireworm, seed corn maggot, and other secondary pest damage. 3. Provides contact and systemic protection. 4. Pre-treated seed provides efficient and easy-to-use seedling protection against insect pests. Please note, does not protect against corn borer or earworm.

FarMore® Treated

FarMore® treated  pumpkin , squash , and melon seed provides broad-spectrum protection against soil-borne disease, as well as early season protection against striped cucumber beetles.

FarMore Treatment offers a first line of defense against several key seed and seedling diseases and insects. The industry standard formulation of Cruiser® 70WS insecticide and three fungicides, Apron XL®, Maxim®4FS, and Dynasty® protect seeds prior to, during, and immediately following germination and emergence. Broad Spectrum Disease Protection Proven field performance against: • General damping-off and seed blight • Fusarium spp. • Pythium spp. • Rhizoctonia spp. (including post emergence protection) Excellent Insect Protection  Early-season insect protection can reduce the possibility of insect-vectored diseases. FarMore provides excellent protection against Striped Cucumber Beetles for approximately 21 days after germination occurs. Performance and Convenience  • Early season protection against disease and Cucumber Beetles • Broad-spectrum protection in variable environmental conditions • Enhanced disease protection gets crops off to a healthy start to maximize yield and quality potential • Treatment is delivered in the bag, on the seed, to ensure proper application and convenience

Filmcoated seed has been coated with an inert, food-grade material for easier handling and flowability. When treated seed is filmcoated, the filmcoat helps the treatment adhere to the seed.

Certified Organic Growers: Filmcoat ingredients are not OMRI Listed.

Untreated seed is clean and has not been treated using any chemical, biological, or physical method. While untreated seed can be grown under organic conditions, the seed crop was not grown under Certified Organic Conditions.

Untreated seed is a popular alternative to organic seed. 

Certified Organic Growers: Untreated seed may be allowed in Certified Organic production, provided that a comparable variety is not available in Certified Organic seed. Check with your certifying agency for approval. Pellet ingredients for pelleted untreated seed (product numbers ending in 11-02) are not approved for use in Certified Organic production.

Seed in its “raw” form, comes in from the parent plant, is clean and has not been treated using any chemical, biological, or physical method.

Organic seed is clean and untreated, and it was grown and harvested under Certified Organic conditions. Organic seed is allowed for use in Certified Organic production.

Many home gardeners use organic seed for their vegetable and flower gardens.

Pellet ingredients for pelleted organic seed (product numbers ending in 11-03) are NOP approved for use in Certified Organic production.

Pelleted seed has been coated with an inert material in order to increase the seed size for easier planting.

Small seeds, such as lettuce, are frequently pelleted to increase the size of the seed, allowing growers to have more control over where the seed is planted.

The trick to germinating pelleted seed is to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. The water will either dissolve the coating or crack it open, allowing the seed to sprout. If the pelleted seed doesn’t get enough water, the coating remains intact around the seed, preventing the seed from accessing water or other essential nutrients. To ensure an even higher rate of germination, use a plastic dome or sheet over the top of your trays to better maintain a humid environment. Certified Organic Growers: Pellet ingredients are not OMRI Listed. Pellet ingredients for pelleted untreated seed (product numbers ending in 11-02) are not approved for use in Certified Organic production. Pellet ingredients for pelleted organic seed (product numbers ending in 11-03) are NOP approved for use in Certified Organic production.

Multi-Pelleted

In multi-pelleted seed, the pellet contains more than one seed. One pellet will create multiple plants.

Primed seed has been primed for easier germination, through a physical processes like steam treatment or through chemical treatment.

Certified Organic Growers: Priming processes vary by seed type and supplier. Contact us for more information, and check with your certifier for guidance on using primed seed.

Fibrous “tails” have been removed from seeds for easier handling and flowability. This may be achieved through either a physical or chemical process.

Certified Organic Growers: Detailing processes vary by seed type and supplier. Contact us for more information, and check with your certifier for guidance on using detailed seed.

MTO Lettuce

MTO = Mosaic Tolerance Zero. Lettuce has been tested for Lettuce Mosaic Virus and no virus was detected in a sample of 30,000 seeds.

Biotech (Sweet Corn)

What is Biotech Sweet Corn and how is it different from conventional varieties? Biotech sweet corn has been bioengineered to exhibit specific traits that are not found in conventional varieties, including resistance to insect pests and tolerance to specific formulations of herbicide. These traits result in plants with strong inherent protection to insect pests, particularly lepidoptera species, with reduced use of insecticides, as well as greater flexibility in weed management.

How It Works - Insect Protection Proteins derived from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), are effective in controlling lepidopteran insect pests because when consumed these proteins bind to the insect’s mid-gut membrane and create pores that ultimately result in insect death. Biotech sweet corn has been developed to produce these proteins, and effectively resist damage from several insect pests. The exact spectrum of control of these insects depends on the traits of each specific variety.

How It Works - Herbicide Tolerance Broad-spectrum herbicides provide excellent control of weeds in a variety of crop production systems; however, their use is limited in Sweet Corn production due to the risk of crop damage. Certain Biotech Sweet Corn varieties can tolerate the active ingredients of these herbicides by breaking down the chemistries involved into non-effective components. Therefore, chemistries such as glyphosate and glufosinate can be applied for weed control without causing unintended harm to the crop. The exact tolerance to herbicide compounds depends on the traits of each specific variety.

Another good question is about the type of pumpkins they have available. Below are my tips for choosing the type of pumpkin you need. You may also want to ask if there will be food available or places to eat if you want to bring your own family picnic .

How to Choose A Pumpkin

There are three main types of pumpkins: carving, gourds, and baking or pie pumpkins. The type of pumpkin you need will depend on what you will do with it.

You will want to ensure the pumpkin patch you visit has the type of pumpkin you want. Will you be carving, decorating, baking, or using pumpkins for the educational activities listed in the next section?

If you want to make homemade pumpkin puree , you will want to choose a small 8 to 10-inch sugar pumpkin. Sugar pumpkins are sweeter than other pumpkins and have been developed for eating. Look for a firm pumpkin with no soft spots or signs of any rot. A few more pumpkin recipe ideas are listed below.

If you are carving your pumpkins or decorating them in some way, look for a visually appealing pumpkin without any soft spots or signs of rot. Choose a pumpkin with a stem and ensure it sits how you want it to when placed on a flat surface.

You will also want to choose a color and shape that will work for the design you have in mind. Pumpkin carving ideas and no-carve decorating ideas can be found below.

Make sure to grab an extra pumpkin or two to try some fun pumpkin activities for kids listed in the next section!

Cool article for pumpkin patches. You mentioned you should try to find out if the pumpkin patch has pumpkins you are looking for. It sounds important to research different types of pumpkins before hand so you have a better idea of what you should look for.

' src=

Yes, it is Taylor.

I think most pumpkin patches that are open to the public have carving pumpkins available. But if you are looking for pumpkins to bake with it is important to make sure the pumpkin patch has sugar pie pumpkins!

This is a really good idea. We have just concluded a month long unit study on Halloween and pumpkins today. As part of the unit study, I took the twins to a pumpkin patch and read stories about pumpkins as well. We even had our own version of a culinary bake off with pumpkins. And we did some math related to pumpkins too. I even had the children participate in some fun science experiments that revolved around pumpkins.

To wrap things up, I finished by allowing both kids to do some art with pumpkins. Next time I’m going to have them write a recount about their trip to a pumpkin patch. And make a mini fact file. The kids loved it. I made pumpkin soup and pie. We even tried making pumpkin crumble. It was lovely!

Wow, Leah! That sounds like you had an amazing time learning about pumpkins… Well done!

Still have questions? Check out our FAQ

The nice things we hear, love all the fun stations.

We’ve been bringing our Preschool & Pre-K classes to Faulkner’s for about 21 years now and we really enjoy it. We love all the fun stations that they do with our kids and that we are able to stay afterwards to play and have our snack. The Scarecrow tour guides and their unique personalities add to our visit. The kids usually enjoy the play areas the most but many enjoy the petting area, the maze and the hayride. The whole experience is just great! And because we’ve been coming so long, we get greeted by name by several of the ‘scarecrows’ and that is really nice.

Scheduling our field trip has been made easy

We love Faulkner Ranch and the joy it brings to our preschoolers. St. Matthew Preschool has been attending Faulkner Ranch for many years. I have attended for the last three years since joining the school. Scheduling our field trip has been made easy by the amazing staff. They work hard to ensure our time is enjoyable and that we get to do lots of different activities. Our families enjoy coming with their child and their class. Each of our classes goes as a group and gets lots of bonding time together. The scarecrows entertain all of us and make the experience fun and enjoyable no matter the weather.

Ranked Idaho's Best Pumpkin Patch by Reader's Digest!

Choose from pumpkins we have picked or take a hayride to the patch to find your perfect pumpkin. Our huge pumpkin patch has thousands of pumpkins of every size, shape, and color. In fact, this year we have more than 55 premium varieties of pumpkins and gourds. From Jack-O-Lanterns to pie pumpkins to warted gourds, you are sure to find the one that strikes your fancy. Pick them right off the vine or choose from some that we have pre-picked for you.

Guide to Pumpkin Picking:

​ go: walk or take the hayride into the farmstead's pumpkin patch.   tip: if you're walking, grab a wagon to help haul your pumpkins out​.

SEARCH​:  Find your perfect pumpkins! Take some time to explore all the quality varieties of pumpkins we have to offer.   TIP: The Farmstead plants many varieties (many of our favorites listed below). We know that you'll find just what you're looking for!

PICK: Pick your pumpkin off the vine. Careful not to damage the stem! TIP: Find the joint where the stem turns to vine. Bending the vine at this weak spot is the best way to disconnect the stem from the vine.

HAUL: Bring your pumpkin to the Scale House near the exit to be weighed. Pay per pound at the Exit Booth. TIP: If you have a wagon, wheel it onto the scale and we will subtract its weight from the total!

Pumpkins available for purchase by the pound

Gourds available for purchase individually, straw bales available for purchase by the bale, pumpkin carts and wheelbarrows are available... use for pumpkins only.

Pumpkin Patch.jpg

Some of The Farmstead's Favorites...

Aladdin

This is a classic for Jack-O-Lanterns! It's great for carving since it has thin meat and more room inside.

Jack-O-Little

These pumpkins are simply miniature versions of the common Aladdin pumpkins! They can last for months, especially if used indoors as decor.

Kakai

These dual-toned pumpkins are great for decoration, but try roasted their seeds and you won't be sorry!

Sugar Pie

Just as you may have guessed, these small-to-medium sized pumpkins are amazing for pies!

Cinderella

This pumpkin is perfect with your fall decor, but can also be eaten!

Lumina

These are white on the outside and orange inside. The are great for carving, but their fleshy meat is also good in pies!

Jarrahdale

These are pale green and provide a nice contrast when decorating. They are good for baking if you can cut through the tough skin.

Fairy Tale

Silvery-orange in color, these pumpkins go well in a group of decorations... And can also be used in pies!

Baby Bear

These tiny pumpkins are great for kids... Try decorating them or even making them into soup bowls!

St. Louis Area Pumpkin Patches Your Family Should Visit This Fall

School is back in session and the beautiful fall colors will soon begin to appear all around us. One of my favorite things about fall is taking my kids to the pumpkin patch. From hayrides, to corn mazes, to picking the perfect pumpkin, the St. Louis area has no shortage of amazing fall activities. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order!

Thies Farm and Market Pumpkinland

1. Pumpkinland - Thies Farm and Market (Maryland Heights, MO)

Located in St. Louis County in the city of Maryland Heights , Pumpkinland is a must visit for most St. Louis area natives. They have a giant play area with something for everyone.

Only a few hundred remain in Ukrainian border town as fierce battles rage

Only a few hundred residents remain in the embattled town of Vovchansk in northeast Ukraine, where Kyiv’s troops are locked in intense battles with the Russian army , according to local officials Monday.

The town, whose prewar population of 17,000 had dwindled to just 2,500 before Russia renewed its ground assault last week, has emerged as a focus point as pitched battles engulf the Kharkiv and Donetsk regions.

Ukrainian local officials said they feared Vovchansk’s fate may mirror that of Bakhmut and Avdiivka, Ukrainian cities where fierce fighting and scorched earth tactics forced Ukrainian withdrawals. Only 200-300 people remain in the town, Kharkiv regional governor Oleh Sinegubov said, as Moscow’s troops advance in an effort to surround it from three directions.

Poorly built fortifications and enduring ammunition shortages enabled Russia’s sweeping advance in the area last week, local officials and soldiers said.

Ukrainians contemplate the once unthinkable: Losing the war with Russia

Could Ukraine lose the war? Once nearly taboo, the question hovers in Kyiv, but Ukrainians believe they must fight for their lives against Putin’s troops.

April 17, 2024

In the span of two days, Moscow has captured some 40 square miles that encompass at least seven villages, most of them already depopulated, according to the open source monitoring project DeepState. It is a significant advance that could pin Ukrainian forces in the northeast while heavy fighting continues in the Donetsk region.

On Monday, Ukrainian troops were still locked in pitched battles in both regions, President Volodymyr Zelensky said. Fighting is taking place near the border in eastern and northeastern Ukraine as outgunned and outnumbered Ukrainian soldiers try to hold back a significant Russian ground offensive.

“Defensive battles are ongoing, fierce battles, on a large part of our border area,” Zelensky said in his nightly video address Sunday.

The Kremlin’s forces are aiming to exploit Ukrainian weaknesses before a big batch of new military aid for Kyiv from the U.S. and European partners arrives on the battlefield in the coming weeks and months, analysts say. That makes this period a window of opportunity for Moscow and one of the most dangerous for Kyiv in the two-year war, they say. It is unclear what of the promised aid has arrived to Ukraine.

In Ukraine’s old imperial city, pastel palaces are in jeopardy, but black humor survives

Ukraine’s port of Odesa is a key Russian target, endangering the city’s UNESCO-designated historic center and challenging citizens to keep their sense of humor.

April 21, 2024

The new Russian push in the northeastern Kharkiv region, along with the ongoing drive into the eastern Donetsk region, comes after months when the roughly 620-mile front line barely budged. In the meantime, both sides have used long-range strikes to pursue what became largely a war of attrition.

Ukraine’s general staff said late Sunday that Russian forces had conducted at least 22 attacks over the previous 24 hours in two parts of the Kharkiv region and had “tactical success.” The statement did not elaborate.

The Kharkiv incursion serves likely three purposes for Russia. First, the northeast operation will pin Ukrainian forces in the region and potentially draw in precious reserves away from heavy battles in the Avdiivka and Chasiv Yar areas of the Donetsk region, where Russia’s advance has been far more significant and strategically important.

Zelensky said fighting in the Donetsk area is “no less intense” than in Kharkiv. He said the Kremlin aimed to “spread our forces thin” by opening a second active front in Kharkiv.

In a Ukrainian village, a woman wants only one thing: to find her husband, who disappeared shortly after Russia’s war on Ukraine started two years ago.

Feb. 24, 2024

Zelensky described the area around Pokrovsk region, just inside the Ukrainian border in Donetsk, as “the most difficult.”

Pokrovsk was a town of around 60,000 people before the war and was until recently a two-hour drive from the front line. Now it is less than half that.

The capture of the Donetsk city of Avdiivka in February opened a door for the Kremlin’s troops to push westward, deeper into Donetsk. Russia illegally annexed Donetsk and three other regions in 2022 shortly after it invaded Ukraine, and taking control of all of Donetsk is one of the Kremlin’s main war goals.

Second, if Ukraine isn’t able to halt Moscow’s advance, it could create future conditions for a possible attack on Kharkiv City, Ukraine’s second largest.

Finally, it could create a “buffer zone” to protect Belgorod, where frequent Ukrainian attacks have embarrassed the Kremlin. In March, Russia announced plans to evacuate about 9,000 children from the Belgorod region because it was being shelled continuously.

Russian emergency services on Monday finished clearing the rubble in the region’s capital city of Belgorod, where a section of a residential building collapsed following what authorities said was Ukrainian shelling.

Ukraine is trying to determine if Russia’s ground attack in Kharkiv is opening a new war front — or meant to divert overstretched Ukrainian troops?

May 10, 2024

Fifteen bodies were pulled from the rubble, Belgorod regional Gov. Vyacheslav Gladkov said, and 27 other people were wounded.

Another three people in the city of Belgorod were killed by shelling late Sunday, he said.

Yevgeny Poddubny, a usually well-connected military correspondent for Russia’s state TV corporation VGTRK, said in a recent Telegram post that the Kharkiv assault marked the beginning of “a new phase.”

“We’re pushing the enemy back from the border, destroying the enemy in order to deprive the Kyiv regime of the opportunity to use relatively cheap rockets to attack Belgorod,” he said.

Novikov writes for the Associated Press.
