Photo Friday - Veggies!

A few days ago our Alaska State Fair ended. Sadly I didn't make it back during the last few days to see the giant cabbages and all of the giant veggies. I did go during the first few days and saw these giant veggies, including the new record breaking pumpkin. They said with all the rain and cool weather this summer we wouldn't see many really large veggies and likely wouldn't see ANY record breakers. Well, this guy certainly proved them wrong.

This is the new record breaking giant pumpkin that was grown by a guy in Anchorage. It weighed in at 1,101 pounds! I think the last record was right around 1,000 lbs.

Additional large veggies that were on hand the day I was there. The long thing in front is a gourd. It's 76 3/4" long. The turnip on the right weighed in at 19.6 lbs, and the kohlrabi came in at 20.05 lbs. The far left is a large head of cauliflower but I didn't see it's weight. Pretty cool!
