Autumnal Seasons Greetings

Pumpkin Field

It's pumpkin time. Have you ever seen so many pumpkins? I remember Pettingill's Farm in Salisbury. They had a farm stand where they would put all the pumpkins they grew. It was always a treat to go there and purchase a pumpkin to carve for Halloween. On occasion some mischievous neighborhood teens would raid the farm stand or the field and smash a few pumpkins on Ferry Road. Pettingill's was also special to us as children because they had pigs, sheep and cows. This was a real working family farm. Gradually Mr. Pettingill gave up the animals and concentrated on just his vegetable and fruit business. Most of the family farms in Salisbury are gone. They are victims of suburban housing development. Memory never fades.
