In Orange, Orange County, California!

Good evening, Pumpkinistas!

It's always great to be back in Orange County, CA, where I was born, grew up, and still live. This week-end I had the pleasure of presenting at two nurseries that have been part of Pumpkinmania! and the giant pumpkin growing workshops since their beginning, yesterday morning at Orange County Farm Supply, at the invitation of Chris Roy and Ron Goss, and this morning at Batavia Garden, at the invitation of Ron Hamada, very ably assisted by Keiko Kakiuchi, and the Hamada brothers. As always, I had a great time, and it's always a plus to speak to a receptive and friendly home crowd! Long time growers, Alex and Carmen Morales, and Rey and Addie Ceja were in attendance. It was great to see so many familiar and supportive faces.

Thank you all very much for making this week-end so very special.
