My son on the other hand had a pumpkin that was pretty much the little engine that could. He got yellow vine disease a little over a month ago and usually the pumpkin stops growing when it takes hold, but that pumpkin kept pushing along. In the end he ended up with a personal best 674 pound pumpkin that was a very nice orange color.
The big winner on the day was Ross, who set a new Utah State record with two pumpkins over one ton and the biggest at 2,142 pounds. Just a great accomplishment for a great guy.
