A New World Record!

Good morning, again, Pumpkinistas!

Beni Meier, a 30 year-old Swiss gardener, set a new world record in a competition in Mainz, Germany yesterday. His winning entry was 2,096 pounds. So, the crown has moved from Napa, California to Switzerland!

I am hoping that crown comes back to the US, and hopefully to a grower in Southern California. Who knows, maybe at this year's Pumpkinmania!
