Farmer John: A Serious Contender
Good evening, Growers!
When it rains, it pours! I received these photos taken from June 23-July 3rd, from Farmer John, a Laguna Hills workshop attendee.
I am very impressed with the depth and effort of his mound and corral/wood frame! In fact, this year's efforts, judging by the images I've received so far, are the best ever.
As you can see, the proper soil and mound preparation goes a long way toward growing a monster. Yes, that's an 18" pumpkin at the top of this photo series! I can identify a few other potential fruit as well.
Many thanks for sending them in, John!
Have a great evening!
