Happy 2021 everyone from those here at GVGO headquarters. This past year was a year we will not forget for a long time. 3 weigh offs did manage to run And some great specimens were brought to the scales. Congrats go out to all growers during this challenging time.

The 2021 version of the GVGO Seminar will be ran VIRTUALLY this year. No matter what the COVID regs are we can run it. The link to sign in will be provided at a later date. It will be held April 10th or 17th, we are just waiting to hear from some speakers which date is good for them. Stay tuned for more details

The Canadian Record Contest was not won in 2020 and will be ran again in 2021 and hopefully won so keep up the patch prep

All of Canada got sent out yesterday and I mailed off US ones today which are being sent to another person to send due to postal complications in my area. European ones are supposed to be picked up for mail on Monday.

Got my GVGO seed pack today.

Pumpkins, squash, field pumpkins, tomatoes, bushel gourds, watermelon, cauliflower, beets, cantaloupe, marrow, sunflower and carrot seeds.

Quite a bargain for $30 CDN. Better get on it before they're all gone!
