    FYI, I grew up in Topsfield and even showed veggies and stuff in the 4-H building. I believe it is the oldest continuously running agricultural fair in the US (started in 1818).

    I never grew a pumpkin that big, though. Not even close. Congrat’s to the European champ!

    Yes, our pumpkin this year weighed in at about 4.3 kilograms. That’s how much weight Beni’s loses in a day, now that it’s off the vine. The European championships are this coming weekend, and a German guy weighed in at 762 kilograms last weekend, so it’ll be a close one!

    True, and the soup was/is tasty. But one regular pumpkin and one butternut seems like a small harvest, albeit much larger than last year!
