The aviary is a nice touch!

A puppet theatre in the trees!

Under the Oaks at Alden Lane Nursery!

Good evening, Pumpkinistas!

The maiden workshop this afternoon at Alden Lane Nursery was a triumph!
Alden Lane Nursery is very whimsical, with a puppet theatre nestled in the crook of one of the many oak trees on the property and even an aviary! The setting for the workshop was a beautifully decorated meeting room. You can see some of the painted murals on the walls.
Some of the workshop attendees were veteran pumpkin growers, so the caliber of the questions were very good. One of the noteworthy results of the workshop was the decision by Alden Lane's owner to grow a giant pumpkin vine at the entrance to the nursery in a very large circular bed!
So, the movement grows and continues to influence more gardeners and inspires future giant pumpkin growers.
Have a great evening!
