It's HUGE.

White pumpkins???



Kingsbury should maybe be called Pumpkinbury.  We are surrounded.

While L's brother had about 450 monster pumpkins growing in the field across the road, her brother in law was busy growing the monster of ALL monsters just up the road.



Can you believe it???
He only grows a couple pumpkins, and they get pampered.


 This pumpkin went to a big pumpkin competition out in the middle of the state somewhere.


Moving it was a venture.



I guess if you sit on your butt too long, this is what you look like.


But looking good from this side!


I think there was some "standing around discussing the move" going on here.


A move that doesn't damage the goods.

Here comes the tractor.


Gently........


I meant to ask if he had named this beauty, all 906 lbs of her.




 And finally, one huge pumpkin, and one handsome young man, safe on the truck.




To all of you who wonder, I'm ok.   Just dealing with a slew of headaches lately, nothing I haven't done before.
Later.

Seeing this makes me wonder if there's a reason why huge pumpkins like this aren't grown from the beginning on some kind of pallet?

Wow, that is insane! What's done with a pumpkin that large... is it possible to eat? We have loads of pumpkin farms around here, too although we tend to grow our own. This year they turned out quite teeny and are only being used as outside decorations.

Ugh, that damned headache. I think it's the weather change making it worse.

I loved this photo series... always wondered how the heck they get those things out of the fields for the competitions around here too. They shoot milk into the vine to help them grow, don't ya know. :-) Or something.
