Farmer Adrien achieved a personal best! His big pumpkin cracked with just 7 days to go before the weigh-off, so he travelled to Pt Elgin’s Pumpkinfest to compete with his smaller “back up” pumpkin. It weighed 1276.2 lbs, surpassing his previous best of 1225 lbs. It was good enough for 10th place in the competition. Here’s a link to the 2014 results.
