The Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off at AndyT’s

by Maralyn Fink

On the road again, I decided to check out the great pumpkin weigh-off at Andy T’s. With plenty of sunshine and clear skies I thought this was a great time to check out these pumpkins and their size.

Well, after checking them out I knew I wouldn’t get one in my car for the neighborhood kids to see. Oh well, I’ll have to stick with Plan B.

Never in my time have I ever seen pumpkins this size.

There were around 60 entries or so in different categories. Straw bales that were used to seat the people attending gave the event a nice country feel.

First Place was taken with a weight of 1921.00 lbs.

It was followed by 1667.00,1591.00, 1483.00, 1402.00 and 1386.00 lbs. From there the poundage went down in small increments. Copies of the whole weigh off are available at Andy T’s.

Hay rides were available, and on all weekends from now on. There are many things to see and do at Andy T’s and if you have not attended a weigh-off there, make sure you catch the one next fall.

Thanks Andy and Sunday for letting me share this with our readers.

These pumpkins have made me hungry, so I need to go find some cookies!
