Pumpkins for Pigs at HSMC

October 31, 2014

Pumpkins for pigsHistoric St. Mary’s City is collecting pumpkins for the plantation pigs this fall. Deliver new or “used” squash to the bin outside the Visitor Center (18751 Hogaboom Lane).

The pigs, Maizie, Pumpkin, and Scarlet, love these big orange fall fruits, which often end up in the trash after serving ornamental purposes.

Retired jack-o’-lanterns are most welcome. The carved grins and grimaces amuse the staff and the pigs.

Please contact Aaron at 240-895-4978 or aaronm@digshistory.org if you have large numbers to share. For more information about Historic St. Mary’s City visit www.hsmcdigshistory.org or call 240-895-4990.
