A New Crop of Giant Pumpkin Growers in Santa Barbara!
Good morning, Pumpkinistas!
The tour finished the Santa Barbara/Ventura area with a very well-attended workshop at the Santa Barbara Home Improvement Center yesterday morning! Fifty hardy attendees braved the drizzle and cool weather to learn about growing giant pumpkins. The workshop was filmed by William Martin, of Edible Gardens, Santa Barbara, and he's promised to send me a link, which I'll post here, once I receive it.
This week-end, it's a drive south to San Diego for two workshops at Walter Andersen Nursery on Saturday, and then to Batavia Garden, Orange on Sunday.
Good luck to the new growers in Santa Barbara!
