My Son & Daughter Took the Top Two Positions in the Weigh-off Today
Congrats to both of them this year. They worked hard in the pumpkin patch and it paid off, taking 1st and 2nd place in the weigh-off. Of course it helped they were the only two kinds in the kids division this year. Regardless of that, a 401 pound pumpkin is good regardless of how many people where in the competition. Both of their pumpkins were nailed by hail twice and lost the main vines on their plants. My son's pumpkin was pollinated the beginning of August if I remember right so to end up at 325 pounds in less than 1 1/2 months on a 150 square foot plant I think is pretty commendable.
