Pete's Pumpkin Update
I've been chronicling Pete's pumpkin adventures all summer long and I think it's time for another update! Unfortunately, one' of Pete's giant pumpkins split - check out the wacky red fungus growing on the broken chunks of pumpkin!
The good news is that one of his pumpkins is still going strong and is over 1000 lbs - I can't give the exact weight, as it will be part of a 'guess the weight' contest this autumn.. It's spectacular though, isn't it!?! Gourd gawkers come from far and wide to see the pumpkin - two cars have gone in the ditch already this year!
Once the contest is over and the exact weight is known, I'll post that too.. Pete - will you be selling the seeds from this monster?
