WIN a pumpkin the size of a VERY LARGE PUMPKIN

Want to WIN the Mother of All Halloween Decorations?

Giganto-Gourd could be YOURS!

The View Ridge PCC (6514 40th Ave NE) is having a Guess the Weight and WIN contest for this unholy beast of a pumpkin.

I asked one of the produce guys how the winner was expected to lug this bad boy home, and he assured me that the store would be of assistance in that area (the manager used his own truck last year, apparently).

Then the produce guy asked me what my guess was. And I told him. And he said I didn’t need to worry about lugging it all the way to my house this year. Drat.

But for bad guessers like myself, there is another option!

Only 39 cents a pound! BARGAIN.

Just like the BUY IT NOW feature on eBay, there are a couple of these beauties, nearly as big, available for purchase. Sixty-seven bucks isn’t too bad for a pumpkin the size of a large dog, is it? And don’t get me started on that gorgeous color.

I ended up not getting any, actually. I grew three pie pumpkins in my p-patch plot this year, and I intend to carve them all up…right after I’ve made them into PIE.


This was more of a silly post than an informative post. Did you enjoy it? Should I do more? Would YOU like to write one? DISCUSS, in the comments.
