Good afternoon, Pumpkinistas!
Two of the things that I have recently learned from Linda Slupsky of The Epoch Times are:
1) The 2009 Pumpkinmania! Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off & Contest also received press coverage in Indonesia, the link is: http://erabaru.net/internasional/35-internasional/6448-labumania-lomba-labu-raksasa-terberat
2) The Indonesian word for 'pumpkin' is labu.
So no matter if it's pumpkin or labu, giant pumpkin cultivation is going global!
Have a great afternoon!
