Good morning, Pumpkinistas!

I am very happy to announce that my long-time and very good friend, Stanley Szymczyk has just started 6 mounds of giant pumpkins in Lake Elsinore. These 6, in addition to the 3 mounds he has already, bring his total number of mounds, to 9! Because of his excellent weather conditions and previous growing experience, we can expect some very big pumpkins. Stanley's given me permission to publish his growing site address so you can stop by if you're in the area: 27297 Lindell Road, Lake Elsinore, CA.

Good luck to Stanley!
