Each year, Breezy Gardens owners Kim and John Miczek plant and harvest more than 100 tons of pumpkins, many of them lifted from the earth by visitors to the farm's pick-your-own pumpkin patch. But pumpkins are just one of many crops: In the spring, chrysanthemums, lilies, and tulips emit subtle fragrances, and the summer months bring an abundance of edible color in the form of yellow squash, blueberries, and ruby-hued tomatoes. The Miczeks practice conscientious growing methods to support the quality of their bounty. Craftily planted determent crops distract insects from disturbing fruits and sleeping vegetables, and soil undergoes frequent analyses by the University of Massachusetts to reveal precise measurements of nutrients. In addition to supplying jack-o'-lanterns, Breezy Gardens gives a nod to colder months with Christmas trees, wreaths, statues, and dried floral arrangements.
