They Grow Big Pumpkins in Oregon

Thad Starr was kind enough to let me stay with him on my trip to Oregon to go to the big weigh-off. Thad had a beautiful orange pumpkin that he grew from his own 1528 seed. Also got a chance to meet and help load up the pumpkin of Dan Orleck on the trip who also had a great pumpkin grown from his own 1129 Orleck (985 Werner x 1041.5 Mckie) seed. Both of their families were super nice and I had a great time at the weigh-off meeting a lot of great growers.
