Congrats to Glen and Margaret Martin from Combined Locks, WI for growing the new World Record LG measuring in at 135.94". I had the pleasure of seeing it yesterday at the Nekoosa giant pumpkin festival.

The gourd was a second crop, Started on August 19 and was still growing until the day before we cut it down on September 29. Very high winds on the 29th, did not want to lose it.
