Hi jenn, a monster for sure. Funny tho all the big ones tend to look the same. Hard to tell just by looking which one is the heaviest. They should also have a contest for the biggest in size, say the biggest diameter. Probably would be difficult to measure . Try getting that tape under the monster.

Wow the word verification gets longer and more difficult to type. Must think I the owner of the blog am spammer.

Can you imagine how attached this man got to his pumpkin?! It is amazing. When I heard this news on the radio, I couldn't help but think of the dedication and even stress a man - pumpkin relationship would be. I am glad it was a RIer with the world record (my former state).

Hi Judith, I would imagine it was like having a baby ;) Probably checked it at least a couple of times each day. I read somewhere that they put a sheet of foam under the growing pumpkin and it takes about 500 pounds of chicken manure to grow one that size. Hey now RIers are known for more than a chicken.
