A Great Workshop at The Huntington!

Good evening, Growers!

Over 30 experienced, new and potential giant pumpkin growers attended today's workshop at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino! Fortunately, nearly every workshop attendee went home with a giant pumpkin seedling so I think that there will be a few more entries in October! I want to extend a very big thank you to Hannah Palmer and her staff and Mae Powell for her ongoing enthusiasm and support.

In addition to hosting a giant pumpkin workshop again, The Huntington will be the site of at least one and possibly two vines this season! So look for it/them during your next visit.

The grounds are spectacular this time of year, so I encourage all of you to visit The Huntington when you're in or around Pasadena.

Next week-end is a busy one. Next Saturday, May 19th, at 10:00 a.m., I'll be speaking at Orange County Farm Supply. Next Sunday, May 20th, at 11:00 a.m., I'll be speaking for the first time, at Green Thumb International in Lake Forest. The seedlings for these workshops are presently dominating the living room and top of the refrigerator.

Hope to see you then!
