We grew smaller this time as we spent more time out on the lake. Scale read 335 lbs. this year. About 100 lbs smaller than usual.

Erin is about to use dad's pocket knife to start the carving.

Actually it is pretty hollow. I got probably 40-50lbs of good pumpkin guts out of it. Rest is hard sides and skin. Still good for about 8 or 10 pies. Seeds are about the size of a quarter.

Awesome, PJ.......that is one big pumpkin. How do you do that? I know there's a trick to it. My dad won the largest pumpkin contest at the state fairground once (he was a kid)........still got the pic.

QUOTE(threecrabs @ Oct 30 2004, 01:38 PM)Wonder if they grew a bigger one than last years???
But of course we did. Figured it was only right since we got a bigger boat, that we grew a bigger pumpkin. Weighed in at 545lbs.
