Huge pumpkin
I heard on the news this week that a pumpkin weighing over 1,600 pounds won the Morro Bay Pumpkin Festival, and had to check it out for myself.

I was really intrigued because earlier this year a very kind pumpkin grower from Pennsylvania gave our 4-H club seeds from HIS award winning pumpkin, along with instructions on how to grow those whopp’ng big ones.

Although our gourds didn’t get any where near that big, a few did weigh-in over 150 pounds. Boy – if I had only known about the prize money!
