Buddy Conley

Buddy Conley & Karen Wiget = quite one team!! They have always been two of my favorite pumpkin growers and definitely a great "pumpkin couple". They live in southern Ohio so we see them about 4 times a year or so; which is a lot compared to most of our pumpkin friends because some live on the west coast! You would never see one without the other and their enthusiasm and love for life was contagious.

Karen came home Friday and found out Buddy was dead. Buddy was one of a kind and one in a million, and was famous for always wearing a cowboy hat and boots. He was only 54 years old.

My heartaches so much for Karen. I can't even imagine how she feels and how much it must seem like life has caved in on her. Buddy planted his plants out in the garden the day before he died. Guess he's growing some place even better this summer.
My 2009 season will be dedicated to Buddy.
