On October 3rd of this year, Nick and Christy Harp of Jackson Township, Ohio, brought a pumpkin to the annual Ohio Valley Giant Pumpkin Growers weigh-off. It weighed 1,725 pounds! That's almost ONE TON of pumpkin! According to the contest organizers, it beat the old World Record for the largest pumpkin by 36 lbs.
Can you imagine how long it would take to carve that puppy?
The owners have offered their pumpkin's dried seeds to anyone who would like them. It would probably take days just to bake them! Oh, and the pies! Hundreds of delicious pies from a 1,725-lb pumpkin! mmmmm....
I love this time of year. :)
