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 run away and Hagrid couldn't find him, asking him for Jacob's sibling's help towards finding him.
In 1993, Hagrid used his pumpkin patch to tether the hippogriff Buckbeak in 1993 while awaiting its sentence of death. With help from the Time-Turner, Harry Potter and Hermione Granger were able to successfully lure Buckbeak out of the pumpkin patch with dead ferrets and have him escape before his execution, and let Sirius take him to be free. Upon finding the hippogriff gone, the executioner (Walden Macnair) hurled his axe at a pumpkin in frustration.
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 few words celebrating his memory.
During the School Year
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.
