Yesterday was a bitter sweet day to put it lightly. it was a day I had been working hard for not just this year but since 2013 when I grew my first competition pumpkin of 416 pounds. I grew it for my daughter to use as Cinderella's carriage for Halloween. Move forward 8 years to yesterday when I showed that not only can a 2,000 pound pumpkin be grown in Kentucky but maybe just maybe one day we can bring the world record back home to the United States of America! I would be lying if I said I wasn't hurt. The pumpkin had a soft spot on the underside which makes it disqualified from competition, It hurt, it still does and it probably will until next spring but it gives me the confidence to go after it next year knowing it CAN be done. Thank you ALL for the kind words and support and to my family who knows the countless hours, early mornings and late nights it takes to grow a 2376 pound pumpkin! Thank you all! I want to congratulate every grower that made it to the scale with a sound fruit it is truly an accomplishment. This was a great year and I am truly blessed!
