Rise of the Giants!

05 Sep

We entered the giant pumpkin contest at the Kansas State Fair.  Our pumpkin wasn’t the smallest (yes). However, we were soundly tromped by a family from Wichita. Spoiler alert—499.8 pounds—that’s a lot pumpkin!




Ok, so they had a little poundage on us. It took two people to lift ours. They needed the forklift. Congrats to these awesome growers!

      We have a Polar Bear pumpkin that weighs in at 72 lbs, and a Dill’s Atlantic that weighs in at 70 lbs. We hadn’t really planned on entering, but they were growing so good…
