Blue Hills Nursery Workshop Goes Well!

Good evening, Growers!

The first "Extreme Gardening: How to Grow a 500-Pound Pumpkin" workshop of the season hosted by Blue Hills Nursery in Whittier went well. Thank you very much for attending! There were many excellent questions asked by the attendees which always makes the experience that more productive. Ty, Toby, and Giselle from Kellogg Garden Products and Dr. Earth were on hand to lend support.

I also appreciate everyone who stayed late and let me know about their experiences last season! Apparently there is a group of engineers interested in putting a video camera/PumpkinCam on one of their vines, so the progress can be monitored in real-time! They suggested a link to this website: I say absolutely.

Next up, this Saturday morning, 10:00 a.m. at Laguna Hills Nursery, 25290 Jeronimo Road, Lake Forest, (949) 830-5653. A plus: Karla, my 406-pounder from last October is still on display.

Have a great week!
