Hear’s to one GIANT pumpkin!!!
Congratulations to Ron Root, winner of the 2010 Half Moon Bay pumpkin growing competition with a 1,535 lb monster. Way to go Ron.
If you are ever in the California central coast town of Half Moon Bay in October you will see this sleepy beach town transformed into Punkinville USA and home to a national competition for GIANT pumpkins. Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere. Pumpkin towers, pumpkin mazes, pumpkin launchers pumpkin field after pumpkin field. It is really lots of fun for kids and adults (Try the pumpkin margaritas or the burgers at 3-Zero Cafe….awesome )
If you want to TRY YOUR HAND at growing your own giant pumpkin you can get some help from a previous post on the subject here.
