Good morning, Pumpkinistas!
Well, in spite of many growers having disappointing seasons, at least one young grower is excited by his prospects at this year's Pumpkinmania! Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off & Contest!
I think it looks like a real contender.
Please mark you calendars:
What: The 2014 Pumpkinmania! Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off & Contest
Day/Date/Time: Sunday, October 26, 2014, 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
(Entry registration from 8:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m., weigh-off will begin at 11:30 a.m.)
