People are nuts. Why would you ever want to grow a 1,725 pound pumpkin? I suppose so that you could say that you did. Apparently pumpkin growing is like horse breeding, you gotta get the right seed from a sire that has the right genes. The seed for this big beauty came from a former world record holder. The funny thing about this picture, besides the obvious, is that it came from northeast Ohio, about 30 miles from where I grew up. In case you ever wondered what it was like growing up in sl-Ohio, I can tell you it was just slightly more exciting than this picture. Depending on your point of view (world record pumpkin growers excepted), something a little more exiting is the new basementcast. It weighs a whole lot less, you can fit in your pocket, and you won’t need five guys to help you with it.
