Would Howard Dill like this pumpkin? No... its not round and its not very big.

It was plain orange, not dazzling. To me this was evidence that the public dislikes them grown on their side.

The only HDA award I have ever won. Public just loved this one. Which probably backs up the argument for letting the growers choose....

But how do we connect with the public if we dont care what they like? Maybe some clubs will consider a people's choice award. I guess the GPC/orange guys are right... keep the HDA award amongst growers. Always a little awkward turning the HDA award into a public award.

I just want to connect with the public... Thats what brings in the buck$. Sponsors are important. Public not excited = we don't have sponsors. And buyers are important. Growers don't buy pumpkins.

It's good clean fun!

Feed the pumpkin to pigs or cows when done displaying them so that growing giant kins is not a wasteful activity. Well... there I go thinking six months ahead rather than about the work I need to do now.
