• Pumpkin Patch Ready to Go
    Thursday, July 19, 2012 at

  • July is the time to plant pumpkin plants if you want pumpkins by Halloween. Students at Westminster High School are right on schedule.

    Each year, students plant a pumpkin patch and use the pumpkin harvest as a major fundraiser for their farm and FFA projects. This year's patch used mulch donated from Agromin to ensure the patch produces a bumper crop!

    Shown are the pumpkin seeds that have sprouted in six pack planters and are ready for planting. Many of the plants were placed in the ground on Saturday, July 14, and received their first "drink" from the drip sprinkler system.

    The patch is popular each year and is easily seen by hundreds of thousands of people who travel the 405 freeway each day as it winds through Westminster next to the high school. We'll check in on how the plants and pumpkins are doing as we get closer to October.
