Scale Readout = 1626.9 pounds*

While many growers would be happy with this weight this is actually only a tease. If you have been following the diary you know it was taping much heavier, so the reason this is a tease is a grower was video taping the scale as the pumpkin was being lifted. As the straps were coming tight the internal integrity of the pumpkin was compromised and the straps tore through the pumpkin. (Good thing the scale was attached.)

Based on the video play back this was the highest the scale read and the actual pumpkin never left the ground. So, the true weight will never be known so it is more like 1626.9++ pounds.

To go this far in the season with a pumpkin with this growth rate and to not even know what it weighed just adds to the disappointment.
