Great Pumpkin Contest - Mission Plaza

I went to the Great Pumpkin Contest in San Luis Obispo at the farmers market yesterday. The pumpkins were so large they took my breath away. I have grown pumpkins all my life... I've never had anything that even came close to these though.I took pictures so you could see them, but to be honest...they really are more spectacular in person.


  1. I love your birthday present, what a lucky gal. I wish I could see those giant pumpkins in real life I'm sure they are amazing.

  2. Holy ginormous gourds, Batman, those pumpkins are beeeeeeg ! Love the one with the little fella. :)
    Nothing short of amazing.

    ps. the plate is lovely (Happy B-Day !)

  3. They really are amazing aren't they? What fun to go see them being judged. They are huge. I wonder how they grow them that big.., lots of fertilizer I would guess.

  4. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that's all I can say!)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Oh my LORD! That's fantastic. I tried to get Jamie Oliver to grow a gigantic pumpkin this year but he didn't get around to it. Hopefully next year!
    Wish I had been there with ya....

  6. i want that huge pumpkin for my halloween party next week!
    wish you a great weekend!

  7. Oh my golly crumpets, they are incredible! You are so very lucky to have seen them in real life xo
