It's Heavy

Have you seen such gigantic pumpkins?
These were on display at the 40th Annual Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival.
I didn't realize it until I got home that a little girl was in my photo comparing herself to Gargantua.

Although not a record, this year at the festival a 1,535 lbs. (696 kg) pumpkin; nevertheless, took the prize as the heaviest.
The current world record pumpkin weighed in at 1,810 lbs. (821 kg).
I wonder what they feed it. I can't even get a single blueberry on my plant to grow. Sigh!

The winner and his/her pumpkin get to be in the festival parade.

The say growers start to resemble their pumpkins, oh wait, I think they say that about dogs. Never mind.

Rainfield61: Wished they can use that science to help grow food for starving people around the world.

TZ: It's food for the giants.

Life Ramblings: I wonder what it looks like inside.

Unknown Mami: Haha, that's funny!
