James Hocking and his pumpkins

Please take a minute to read this excellent interview with our good friend James Hocking about his amazing prize winning veg, pumpkins, and Californian wine, with a nice mention of us included.
The little Asian pumpkin he brought us recently was the most delicious thing i've eaten in ages and his potatoes this year were unreal!! Best spuds ever!! He also sells us some rather exceptional wines, although when we meet up we drink more of these wines than we sell....
