Good afternoon, Growers!
It's been quite a week-end. Yesterday morning, the tour continued at Island View Nursery, in Carpenteria, followed by the maiden workshop of Elegant Gardens Nursery, in Moorpark, just below the Reagan Presidential Library. Lisa Cullen, host of the 'Garden Gossip' radio show dropped by at Island View Nursery's workshop, and shared some of her own experiences with watering her vine last season.
This morning, Batavia Garden, in Orange, a long-time Pumpkinmania sponsor and supporter supplied the veteran and first-time attendees with cookies, coffee, and additional door-prizes!
Speaking of prizes, the remaining 2008 workshops will all feature 'pedigreed' giant pumpkin seedlings, hand-germinated, nurtured, and monitored by my father-in-law, Rixin Ge and me.
Have a great evening!
