Fellow growers, Tim Parks here. I just wanted to let everyone know you don’t have to be a member of the OVGPG to attend our seminar. We are really excited to have 2 speakers from outside of the giant pumpkin community presenting this year. I have already seen Dr. Holdsworth’s presentation. He is going to talk about three different breeding methods and his disease PowerPoint will be a great benefit to all grower be they new or tenured, This along with John K., Karl’s Q and A and Steve Tillman of Biosafe we feel this seminar will be one of the best this year. Hope you can make it!
