When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. But when you get too many pumpkins, well, that’s when things need to get really creative.
Such was our dilemma when we were faced with an unexpected bumper crop of pumpkins here on the Santa Margarita Ranch. Then the light bulb went off: rather than plow the gourds under or let them rot, what if we could find them some happy homes?
With that thought, our staff got in the spirit and mobilized, stuffing their vehicles with pumpkins and hitting the road.
