2011 Pumpkin Palooza

On Saturday, October 1st 4-Hers and parents from Buncombe and Transylvania Counties visited the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center for a cold morning (actually freezing morning) of pumpkin fun!  Liz Driscoll and Dr. Greg Hoyt put together a fantastic program where 4-Hers learned all about pumpkins, visited a pumpkin patch, picked out carloads of pumpkins to take home, voted for the best paintable pumpkin, and even got to throw pumpkins and watch them explode when they hit the ground.    All who participated had a great time and we look forward to next year”s Pumpkin Palooza!!  Below are some highlights of the day…
