This pumpkin patch was owned and cared for by Rubeus Hagrid, gamekeeper at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and was located behind Hagrid's Hut on the Hogwarts Grounds.[1]

History

In 1986 when Fang was a puppy, he was in the pumpkin patch when he found a fairy in it which scared him. Fang then ran away and Hagrid couldn't find him, thus he asked for Jacob's sibling's help towards finding him.[2]

The pumpkin patch in 1994

In 1993, Hagrid used his pumpkin patch to tether the hippogriff Buckbeak in 1993 while awaiting its sentence of death.[3] With help from the Time-Turner, Harry Potter and Hermione Granger were able to successfully remove Buckbeak out of the pumpkin patch before his execution by pulling him with rope into the forest, take him back inside Hagrid's hut after everyone had else had left it, and let Sirius take him to be free.[4]

In 1996, the pumpkin patch was where Aragog's funeral took place. With the aid of Harry and Horace Slughorn, Hagrid dug a grave for the acromantula and laid the enormous spider to rest with Slughorn saying a eulogy celebrating his memory.[5]

Usage

The pumpkin patch was where Hagrid grew enormous pumpkins for the school's Hallowe'en feast every year on 31 October. These pumpkins are usually carved into Jack-o-Lanterns and enchanted to hang from the ceiling in the Great Hall or in the corridors.[1]
