DH and I went to Youngstown, Oh for Labor Day weekend and had the good fortune to attend the Canfield Fair. Here we are in front of a rather large pumpkin!
And this pumpkin was the Granddaddy of them all! The First Place Winner for the largest pumpkin in Canfield, Ohio and quite possibly the world. If you can read the sign next to it you can see that over the years the winning pumpkins have gotten larger. I have no idea if this is due to fertilization or some other advances in growing pumpkins but I do know it would take a forklift to move this thing!
