This morning was the weigh-in for the 2017 Giant Pumpkin Contest. Each spring we give special seeds to young members of our community which they can grow on in part of the Garden at Fritz. Unlike last year, the weather was glorious this October morning. After the warm and wet summer we have enjoyed, the pumpkins have grown mightily and we have set a new record.
The winning pumpkin was grown by Thomas and Julianne Thierry and it weighed an amazing 180lbs (82 kg)
Our thanks to everyone who took part – and we look forward to trying to beat this record in 2018.
