SQUASH, PUMPKINS & GOURDS:
Fall of 2013 - We have no pumpkins this season because of Mother Nature's inclement weather this year. However, we DO have various miniature pumpkins such as Jack-Be-Little, We-Be-Little and various white ornamental 'Munchkin' pumpkins. These will be for sale at the Great Adirondack Corn Maze. We also have Golden Sunshine squash which will also be for sale at the Great Adirondack Corn Maze.

Tucker Farms offers both summer squash and winter squash, all of which are members of the cucurbit genus. Summer squash, as everyone knows, consists of immature vegetables harvested before they are ripe. That is, they have thin, soft skins, and the fruit is rather small. They are typically eaten almost immediately and require little to no cooking. Summer squashes include zucchini (courgette), pattypan and yellow crookneck squashes. They cannot be stored for any significant duration. Winter squash (such as butternut, Hubbard, buttercup, ambercup, acorn, spaghetti, vegetable spaghetti), pumpkins (all kinds), on the other hand, are harvested at maturity at the end of the season (usually in October). These can be stored under ideal conditions for many months, and these are, by far, the more nutritious of all the cucurbits.

CORN STALKS:
From late September onward, Tucker Farms has corn stalks for sale at the farm. They are normally sold by the bundle, a.k.a. a sheaf (sheave) or a shock, which consists of about ten stalks. One might also hear the word 'stook' being used to refer to a bundle of corn stalks. In actuality, a stook is a number of bundles or sheaves trussed together to dry in the field. Early in the season (before hard frost) the bundles (or sheaves or shocks), will be green, but after the first hard frost they will be brown/tan, i.e. the color of dried corn stalks. They are ideal for making displays, decorations, wreaths, etc. (Dried corn stalks must be soaked in warm water to make them pliable before they can be woven into wreaths.) Those with an artistic bent will integrate hay or straw bales, pumpkins and gourds into colorful, eye-catching displays. Always call ahead if large quantities are required.

ROCKS: Field Stone, Landscaping Boulders, River Rocks and River Boulders
rocksAt the end of the Pleistocene epoch during which the various glaciers left behind a great number of rocks which we have laboriously removed from our fields and set aside for future use. Sizes range from tennis balls to refrigerators. They are perfect for field stone masonry, boulder landscaping, slope stabilization, rip-rap and other projects requiring Adirondack native rocks and stones. Tucker Farms, Inc. does not deliver, but will be glad to show all interested parties the large and varied inventory. These are authentic Adirondack field stone and river rocks.
