Bring it on!!! After today's storm we'll of had more rain in one year then the last 5 years combined!! The funny things is,,, I'm still having to water the cover crop in the greenhouse 2 to 3 times a week.

Had a great day with KC Kevin getting all the seed packs put together for the winners of the Southern California auction! This is a ton of work but having good company makes it enjoyable and fun! Thanks Kevin for all your hard work! It's been a great first year and we kicked some butt for our weigh off! Thanks again for everyone who supported us,,, even you Scott Marley!

Anyone that bid on Kevin's pepper seeds will also receive a small pack of his famous hot pepper pepper sprinkles to add a little spice to their food! Trust me, the stuff is good on just about everything!!

We finally have sun after the wettest winter in many, many years. We've put s huge dent in the drought and winter still has a couple months! This is where I've started my mornings for the past 40 years. Some much had changed but right here, right now still stays the same! The real pumpkin prep has begun!!

California gold! 80 degrees all winter has really helped the mustard grow. Even on the 50 degree days the house gets up into the 80's. A little water a couple times a week and 7' to 9' feet it grew! The top of the house is 10 feet and it's touching in a few areas! It's going to be a fun workout getting this cut and tilled but after my results last time I planted mustard it will all be worth it! Headed up to the Elk Grove meeting this Friday with KC Kevin. Always a fun time up there and looking forward to seeing everyone,,,,, even you Pingrey....

Had a wonderful visit from Dave C and his wife Janet today all the way down from Canada. It's always fun getting together with other growers and talking pumpkins! We had a nice lunch and then a little patch tour at my empty garden. Things won't be empty for long. Soil samples have been sent out and things are starting to happen! Thanks again for taking the time today guys!
