Worlds largest Pumpkin

9 replies • Last post

Hiya CL Members,

It is that time of year where the pumpkins are perfect for picking at least here in the US. The world record for the largest pumpkin ever goes to Chris Stevens of New Richmond, Wisconsin.

His pumpkin weighed in at a whopping 1,810.5 pounds/821.228986 kilograms!!! That is a whole lot of pumpkin pies and pumpkin seeds!!

Surprized

What do they grow those things with? are there pumpkin steroids?!?

I had a friend from England stay with me for a while once and we gave him some pumpkin with his meal and he was shocked and said they only feed it to pigs. They don't know what they are missing out on!

The winner to this contest said that he did use special seeds he got from a farmer to produce massive pumpkins. Can you even imagine the likes of something this big sitting in your back yard Scared

I LOVE pumpkin pie, with a homemade crust and REAL whipped cream on top. I only get it on Thanksgiving, but nothing beats a homemade pumpkin pie! Yum! Smile

They also have corn mazes here. Has anyone ever been? I have never gone to one, but I have gone to apple orchards and gone on hay rides this time of year, when my sons were younger. Fun times. Smile

Did you know that Anoka, Minnesota (not far from where I live) calls itself "The Halloween Capital of the World?" They really do it big on Halloween, and this started way back in the early 1900s, I believe, possibly even earlier. as a way to keep the mischievous youngsters occupied. They have two parades, a "kiddie parade" and a regular parade on Halloween. My son and I went to the Historical Society's "haunted tour," a few weeks back, and that was fun! We walked through the town, as a guided tour, and our guide would stop in front of homes and businesses said to be haunted and tell the spooky tales. It was fun and interesting, and we learned a lot about the little suburb not far from us. My oldest son is into all the Ghost Hunter shows on TV now, lol, and so I told him I would go with him to the haunted tour. Anyway, just a bit of Halloween trivia. Smile
