Throwback Thursday it is. Here is a great old pic of a couple hall of famers before there was a hall of fame. Joel Holland (videotaping) and Kirk Mombert, in Kirk's pumpkin patch. As always, Kirk's patch was perfect, his plants were perfect and pumpkins were all orange and beautiful. Best part of that day was while Joel was busy filming with Kirk, I was raiding Kirk's compost pile for seeds from one of his giants that had split. Nothing like digging through a stinky compost pile, and for those who know the smell of a rotting giant pumpkin, you know what i am talking about. If you don't, well, let's just say it is 'epic' level nasty. It has been 20 years now and I still get razzed about that and will probably never lose the 'hashtag' of being a scrounge. Waste not want not, right?, says Brett with bulging wet pockets full of smelly seeds
