One autumn morning, Maezie visits her garden only to discover that looters have destroyed her pumpkin patch. With the support of neighbors and friends, Maezie finds the spirit and determination needed to recreate her magnificent pumpkin patch and keep her love for growing pumpkins alive.


Three generations of family and friends came together to create this touching true story about a determined gardener, a supportive neighborhood, and the kindness of people nationwide. While it is a children's book, the message contained in Maezie's Pumpkin Patch will touch readers of all ages. Planting tips and pumpkin favorites, as well as additional narrative with animals and hidden hearts, are included, too.

We hope this book will inspire you to get out there and dig, plant, draw, write, search for the moon, discover nature, be kind, and find your passion.
