In the Patch

We love to go out and visit the pumpkin patches of fellow growers. Learning from experienced growers is probably one of the best ways for beginners to improve their results. During each visit we take lots of digital pictures, video and notes on any special techniques being used. If your patch is too far away for a visit, you can send us photos and/or video and we may post it on this web site. For information about having a "Patch Page" built please send e-mail to John.
