Storyline

Seattle radio talk-show host Emma Silver inherits grandpa Walt's pumpkin farm in Valleyville. She didn't plan to respect his last will, which was to run the farm, but loses her job and is forced to accept hosting a new 'green' program. In order to keep it, she must pay off a $75,000 mortgage. To that end, she hopes to win the pumpkin growing contest using grandpa's winning seed line and cultivation log. Neighbor Seth Cullen, the town's handyman (and actually a Stanford engineering graduate), has a hard time convincing her they need to team up. Written by KGF Vissers

"If a truckload of manure won't do it, I don't know what will."
27 July 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Radio talk-show host Emma Silver (Shannen Doherty) inherits a pumpkin farm from her late grandfather. She doesn't plan to keep the farm but the new manager of her radio station comes up with the idea of Emma hosting a gardening show from the farm, as well as enter Emma into the town's pumpkin-growing contest. She knows nothing about gardening or pumpkins, however, so she is forced to rely on her new neighbor (Kavan Smith) for help. If you guessed these two will have a "will they/won't they" thing going on, welcome to Hallmark.

Predictable and sometimes cheesy made-for-TV movie. The cast is very likable. I enjoyed Shannen a lot in this. Kavan Smith is good also and has nice chemistry with Shannen, despite his rather unfortunate haircut. The rest of the cast is made up of "whozzat" actors, most of whom I'm not familiar with but I'll assume are Canadian. The most lasting impression left by any of them is that of April Telek -- hubba hubba! It's a slight but fun movie that left a grin on my face, which is all you can ask for with something from Hallmark. Oh and if you think that they went the whole movie without once using the title as a double entendre, think again.
