Last year, Anna Pacheco, who is a writer for the new Mexican, called up to ask me if I would be interested in being in her next book, Legendary Locals of Santa Fe. She said she wanted me in it for my giant pumpkins and giant vegetables that I grow. I asked her if I was old enough and she said yes (you don’t have to be dead)! The book will be available for purchase at the book signing this Sunday, March 17 and I will be there to sign my page for anyone interested. I wonder who else will be in it. The mayor will be there and there will refreshments and music too! Such a festive event! Amazing-so many people are interested in this odd hobby of mine. Hope you can come and check it out. As I have not seen the book yet, I wonder what category I fall under? Entertainment? Art? LOL!
Here is the press release:
“The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission will sponsor the book signing-launch of:
Legendary Locals of Santa Fe
on Sunday, March 17th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.

located at 3221 W. Rodeo Road.

Brava! brava! Mazel Tov on making this splendid book of Legendary Locals!
How many shovels of manure? How much watering? How much hovering over each 15 pound pumpkin seed, nurtured with love and daily attention? You deserve this special recognition…
We’re so happy for you… love, Lynne and Laurie
Thanks Lynne and Laurie.Nice to see you both today!
A ‘living’ legend no less. Must be all the great veggies.
