The New Wyoming Giant Pumpkin Record is 1322 Pounds!

Ron Hoffman does it once again, setting the Wyoming State Record for the largest pumpkin grown.  Ron is an incredible grower and has been growing giant pumpkins longer than anyone in Wyoming.  He works hard at the hobby, but his character speaks to more than just growing pumpkins.  Ron is always willing to share advise, provide seeds, and is extremely humble.  I am very happy that he has the title back.

This year, my pumpkins were not as large.  I definitely learned that you can not automate giant pumpkin growing.  I am always learning and maybe learning more what not to do.  This year’s lesson, don’t let your side vines get out of control and grow tertiary vines everywhere.
