Today I went back to my roots and took my pumpkin to the Festval of Scarecrows, the place of my first ever weigh-off. Along with it I had my kids pumpkins along with the biggest pumpkin grown in Colorado by Joe. Pulling up at the weigh-off you would have thought we were rock stars. Most people have never seen a 500+ pound pumpkin more or less a 1,300 pound pumpkin. The smiles on their faces makes a season of hard work worth it.
In the weigh-off we took all of the top honors with the kids taking 1st and 2nd (even beating all of the adults by a lot) and I took first in the adult division. I got a lot of seed requests at the weigh-off. It was a fun day.
Took this picture before the weigh-off. I love fall.
