Family gets a bumper crop

Email

About as long as 32-year-old Henry Pommerening has been alive -- certainly as long as he can remember -- his family has spent their fall peddling pumpkins out on his grandparents' southern Cottage Grove farm.

It's a Pommerening pumpkin tradition: each summer, family members get out in the field, mound the dirt, drop in five seeds, walk another 12 feet and do it again. Then, come autumn, they share their wares with south Washington County.
