#237: Giant Pumpkins

We haven’t grown an Atlantic Giant pumpkin for a few years.
They take up too much room in a garden we need
 for food and flowers.
They are, however, an essential element of the County Fair.

What is it about giant vegetables that’s so thrilling?

Ray Owen’s , the one to beat. 543 lbs.
He wins almost every year.

Not this year:

Marcus Goulding’s–662 lbs.

And the thumbs up pumpkin of 2011,
grown by Matt Avery, 736 lbs.
A Nantucket County Fair Record!

Oh, the joys of small town life.
