Good morning, Pumpkinistas!
I received this account and these photos of Yamagami's Nursery's Great Weigh-off from Carolyn Villa-Scott:
"The big event came off with only one hitch. The winning pumpkin, Tatiana, was too big for our scale, which had a weight limit of 500lbs. That’s right, Tatiana had to be weighed at our kind neighbor (2 blocks down), Granite Rock. She weighed in at a whopping 825 lbs! She was grown by Nedra Lettunich of Los Gatos. Nedra was inspired by Stuart Shim’s Giant Pumpkin Growing Seminar here, particularly when he said that one year his pumpkin only weighed 85 lbs. She figured she could do that, and she sure did!"
