Pumpkin Update

I took the year off of competitive giant pumpkin growing since I was growing a little pumpkin in my belly, but Nick decided to grow 3 plants. Above is his best and it is estimating at 1263.

This is the time of year where everyone gets caught up in rumors. THERE'S THIS ONE IN EUROPE THAT CAN BEAT THE WORLD RECORD AND THIS ONE IN WISCONSIN AND AND AND AND AND.... Could drive a person nuts. It is all speculation. I just have to remind myself that records were meant to be broken, so if someone grows a pumpkin 1726 or higher, well it was good that I had a world record that lasted a whole year. :)

Now we wait and see what all shows up at the scales in October!!!!! And maybe get caught up in reading just a few rumors. ;)
