786 Pounds

A few years ago I was at a pumpkin patch.
I can't imagine growing a pumpkin this size and transporting it.
People that can grow huge vegetables and fruits are special.
The children were fascinated with this pumpkin.


Farther along in the patch I came across the carved pumpkin below.
The children of today at early ages know the name of our president.
Even two year old kids can say his name.
I do not remember this happening when I was a child.
But then again I feel it depends on education and parents.

Last year I had four pumpkins growing, but I also knew we would be gone over Halloween. While they were small, I carved/scratched in the names of the neighbor kids. When we left for Florida in October, I put the pumpkins on the neighbor's porch. Our neighbors were away the day we left, so when they returned, they got to discover the pumpkins with the kids' names on them. They turned out to be quite cool pumpkins.
