Oak View takes its pick of pumpkins

October 24, 2008

Local kids got a chance to carry away just-their-size pumpkins in a patch younger than them.

Oak View preschoolers and kindergartners walked across the street Oct. 22 and 24 to tour a pumpkin patch that employees from Rainbow Disposal Co., Inc. planted last summer.

“Farmer” Tony Hurtado, a 36-year Rainbow maintenance and construction employee, has made one acre of the site into a pumpkin patch and vegetable garden for the children.

“I love to plant and see things grow and want the children to see all the pumpkins we have right across the street,” Hurtado said in a news release. “When they come they will learn how the pumpkins started from little seeds and how water, sunlight and compost help them grow.”

Each child was invited to choose his or her own pumpkin.
