There are some sights that you just don’t expect in Ireland and a Pumpkin Man is one. But, yesterday on a visit to magnificent Hook Head Lighthouse in Co. Wexford, I met with Charles Colfer who grows pumpkins at Aldridge Farm in nearby Duncannon.
The pumpkins range from medium to giant and they were an absolute sight to behold ~ pure pumpkin!
This is Charles’ second year growing pumpkins and he now has a few acres devoted to them at Aldridge Farm. He imported the seeds from America but these are Wexford pumpkins through and through.
The seas were very wild and the trawlers moored at Duncannon Harbour drew my attention on the way home. The two boats that immediately caught my eye were Wayfinder and Provider. What better words to describe the Pumpkin Man!
