This morning (Saturday 22 October) The garden-at-Fritz ended a fabulously successful and productive year growing vegetables for local food banks by celebrating – in pouring rain – the weigh-in for our Annual Youth Pumpkin Contest.
Each season young people from the town are invited to “adopt” a pumpkin seed which they plant and tend during the summer months with the object of growing the largest pumpkin ready for Halloween.
- First prize was taken by Ana Gagnon at 110lbs
- Second prize went to Sophie Hamdan at 100 lbs
- Third prize was awarded to Claudia Tierry with a pumpkin of 80 lbs
Our congratulations to the winners and our thanks to the other 15 contestants for taking part.

It was an adventure finding which pumpkin led to whose plant! It was a jungle out there. Some of the pumpkins were completely hidden by vines and it was a surprise to discover yet more pumpkins than anticipated.
Who knew Pumpkins could grow so beautifully ??
Congratulations Everyone!!! What a successful Year!!!!
