Today we took the pumpkin to the scale and had a pleasant surprise. I kind of thought my pumpkin would go heavy but I didn't expect it to go 9% heavy which pushed me up to 837 pounds and a 4th place finish overall. A big thanks for the support of my wife and family in allowing this season to take place. Also a big thanks to the growers in the RMGVG.
Top honors today went to Joe Scherber with a very nice 1,225 pounder. A very nice pumpkin.
A new world record pumpkin was weighed yesterday. An absolutely amazing 2,009 pounds grown by Ron Wallace of Rhode Island. I've had dinner with Ron and he is a class act so a very big congrats to him.
