A good year for pumpkins
Bolton Landing resident and horticulture enthusiast Alice Coon has planted her own vegetable garden, and she said this week this year has been the best for vegetable production that she can remember.
Although she has many hobbies and interests, she said having her own garden is her favorite. She usually doesn't plant pumpkins but this year she thought she would give it a try. The results were a great surprise to her. Most of the pumpkins have been spoken for, but if anyone wants some seeds to plant, she said she will have plenty.
Alice offered some advice this week for gardeners.
"Don't plant anything you can't carry out of your garden," she said with a smile. Some of her pumpkins were at least 50 pounds, requiring help moving them, we hear.
