Tips From the Garden~Pumpkins


Tips From the Garden~
Pumpkins
Enormous
Pumpkins

For today's Saturdays Gardens Post I thought I would talk about Pumpkins! 
Why? Well on Monday the Sept 15 of 2014 I went to the Washington State Fair
with my husband and son.Besides having a great time; which I will write about the day
on another post later. I saw these 'Enomorms Pumpkins'.
For the coming Fall of October, it seems that I have seen alot of pumpkins
these days. Even In the fields that are all around where I live, in the valley. There are full 
of pumpkins these last couple of weeks. I noticed the corn maze that they have every
year nearby where I live. The corn stalks are starting to get taller and taller; and the 
sign is up too. I remember last year my son having fun going thru that maze although it got dark fast and they had to help him and a couple of other teenagers that were lost in the dark maze with flashlights. He still had a great time. This year If he decides to go thru the maze again we are going to make sure to 
give are son a flashlight. 
Its interesting how folks who do his during the pumpkin season more seriously with the 
growth of their huge pumpkins or 1emormous pumpkin. These pumpkins can get 
huge, but what I understand its all in the seeds.

pumpkin seed at the right
is the super size

Some of the oldest world records that I could find were back in the 1857. This was a
Southeast England grower and his pumpkin weight in at 245 pounds.   
In 1893 there was a farmer from Goderich, Ontario in which he produced a 
pumpkin weighing in at 365 pounds for the Chicago Worlds Fair. 
That same Farmer; William Warnock again seven years later in
Paris entree weight in a 400 pound pumpkin. Then again William Warnock 
wins again at the Worlds Fair at St. Louis in 1904 with a pumpkin weighing in
at 403 pounds. 
It seems that the Farmer William Warnock would hold his title for more than 
70 years!!! Warnocks recorded was finally broken in 1976, but from what I found 
it didn't show any dates, or who this Pennsylvania pumpkin grower was? So in my opinion 
Warnock's recorded wasn't broken till an Canadian , by the name of 
Howard Dill who finally was able to break the 70year record!
Dill got the attention to the Guinness book of World Records in 1981 for his 
493.5 pound pumpkin. 
After that the Giant Pumpkin Growing Clubs Began!
Today its not just pumpkins! its all kinds of vegetables! Although the 
pumpkins have gotten much larger! 
Thomas Andres a Squash Expert had the first 2,000 pound PUMPKIN!
In 2008 I found Steve Connolly and his PUMPKINS tip the scales at 1,900!
and his seeds fetch up to $500.
In 2009 a Schoolteacher - Christy Harp had her Pumpkin! weighting in at 1,725!
In 2012 at the Topsfield Fair in USA in September a farmer Ronwallace 
in Rhode Island had a PUMPKIN WEIGHTING IN AT 2,032!
DISPLAY IT AT THE TOPSFIELD FAIR
The last one since were upon the season where
there are lots all over the world hoping their PUMPKIN
will be the NEXT BIGGEST!
IN October 11, 2013, Tim Mathison brought in his
Pumpkin at the record to 2032 pounds. 
So It seems that 2,032 is the weight to bet! 
I will come back to this post for fun to see if they broke 
the record in the year 2014 so stay tuned! 
I hope you Enjoyed my story this time in 
Tips From the Garden in Pumkins 
HAPPY FALL!
